Like I understand the joy of having an encounter with a dog, especially a puppy, and how much it can make you happy, so it makes me happy to be able to do that for any strangers I see in the street who want to say hi to her.
Is this my fault? Can I do anything about this business and their fence? I walk with my kid, the border collie, and the neighbor’s dog every day, and this has never happened.
For the last 4 months he has been very reluctant to play with his toys, maybe he would reach for them once a day for 5 minutes max. He’s now reaching for them multiple times a day and isn’t really settling. We considered that the increase in energy may have been because he was previously used to longer walks of around 1hr30 a day, during recover he would get around 30mins. We’re now back to pre-op exercise levels, but we still have a much more active dog.
Is there anything I can do about it? It’s a pain in the ass trying to scoop soft wet poop from the sidewalk.
I don’t really care about size, but I work a lot, so it would be very helpful with a dog that is not big size, as others will have to go for a walk / watch it for me as well.
