So today was the day we had been building to since we got Poppy 5 weeks ago, the day that all the lead training in the garden was building to, she was finally let out! We had been panicking in the lead up to this because to be honest Poppy and her lead werent really best friends but today went far better than we could have ever imagined!
We have been training with tiny pieces of hotdog sausages and so armed with these we clipped her lead on and off we went, well it took us a little while to get out of the door as Poppy was extremely nervous of leaving the front step but when we eventually got there then she was off! With a bit of encouragement we managed a 10 minute walk, encountered another dog, 3 scooters and a buggy and made it home without too much effort!
Now to make this part of our routine!
