Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
One thing about keeping a counter-surfer chocolate lab here at the house, I make sure my dishes are washed at the end of the day and the trash can is either up or has been emptied. He's keeping me on my housekeeping toes!
I pulled out some of my climbing hardware (carabiners, figure 8 used in rappelling, break bar, etc,) and am running the dog leashes through, working out how to keep the leashes at a set length but still being adjustable if I need to loosen the leads and re-arrange them. I took knots out of the leashes because the set lengths didn't work when I rearranged the dogs on either side of me. I'm working on getting my two to stop pulling - there is a way, I'm sure, but I haven't accomplished it yet. One thing I will do is get another Gentle Leader head collar for the pit bull - she hates it, but she does walk better with it.
