|I got Sanka when I was a little girl. I tried to walk him when when he was a pup, but he was frightened. So, I assumed he didn't like walks....and thus never walked him. When I got older, a few years later, I would take him on an occasional walk. He loved it...but a bit too much, and his pulling and peeing was just too much for me, so I didn't take him on many walks again, for years. In high school, I was into sports that took up pretty much all my after school time, so in addition to no walks, Sanka rarely was even played with.
I regret it so much. That was his glory years. I could have used him as a training partner for my sports, but I just didn't know any better.
I love letting my dogs stick their heads out the car windows.
I don't always restrain them in the car.
They're outside dogs.
I don't constantly supervise them when outside (obviously).
I let Kato off leash in on leash areas.
I let Sanka eat the critters he catches.
I let Kato jump the fence at the dog park when there are no dogs there so he can romp in the corn field.
I encourage the chasing of squirrels and rabbits.
They always get leftovers from supper.
I suppose there's more, but I just can't think of them at the moment.
