I can't thank my friend Katherine enough for telling me about The Dog Whisperer. I had grown lazy with our large fenced yard and thought that I could let Peggy "get her exercise" out there without a daily walk on a leash. The Dog Whisperer has convinced me how important it is to walk her. She has an urgent need to go places fast and yesterday on the walk she whined and cried because I made her stay behind me. She wants to be the leader. My arm was so sore from holding the leash and I had doubts about how walking her regularly was going to work out for us. But it was different tonight. Tonight she was a calm and well-behaved dog. She walked by my side, just behind my knee, like she had been doing it like this every day for the last year! I can't wait to do it again tomorrow.
