A Boy and His Dog: Day Two

Well, the training is actually working. Scooter is alot calmer now and is able to listen to commands such as "stop", "come" and "no" when he is off the leash, and he will return when called. He is not used to being off the leash when he is outside because at his house there is no fence and he would usually run wild. Our backyard is fenced, so he is somewhat contained.
One of the biggest things to work on now is when he is on the leash, he wants to pull in his direction, and he doesn't want to follow mine. Today we will probably work on this skill mostly, as he is a rather large dog and his force can be something to reckon with.
So I want you to think about this for your day as you go through your routines of life:
Are you like scooter? Do you want to pull on the leash and show God where YOU'RE going? Or do you want to stand beside him, confident that he will not let you go, that he will guide you with gentle tugs on the leash and collar?
Like scooter, I think you'll find the second choice a better deal in the end!
Stop back by tomorrow as we follow scooters progress!
May God bless!
