I haven’t spent much time acclimating Pike to a head collar, but I decided to grab him and Loki for a neighborhood walk together so I could meet my daily steps goal. He did great! Pike is a very different walker from Loki — Pike is on a mission. His mission is to get through the walk as quickly as possible. Ignore the trees and other vertical surfaces, just walk. That way. Very fast.
Loki is typical boy dog — if there’s a vertical surface, he wants to pee on it. All of them. After spending a full minute sniffing first. So it was nice having Pike along to keep Loki moving. We did a figure-eight loop around the house.
Walking isn’t nearly enough physical activity to even make a dent on the daily exercise requirements for the boys, but it entertained them, and I met my goal, so there’s that.
