One of the coolest ways to get to know a dog is to walk them.
Walks are always a good thing, dogs are social animals that love to smell the world (and the pee) and as long as you have some baggies to pick up the poo, it’s a responsible thing to do.
I loved walking Gus although with his strong pull, it sometimes required 2 hands. The dog definitely didn’t understand heel.
I have not always loved Max (I like to call him Xam) with all of his yapping and jumping on you, but it’s still fun to walk that crazy dog. And I can tell how much he appreciates it.
So don’t forget the small things like walking the dog, it’s a good thing.
