Ben’s six months old since yesterday!
Ben had his first outing with a harness on yesterday. He didn’t like it.
As soon as he put the slightest pressure on it with his pulling, he got scared, sat down and refused to move. I have to jump up and down like a lunatic to get him to move again, praising him and stoking him only while he’s moving. Ben’s first outing at his new home was on a collar and lead. Here his is at nine weeks on his first trip out:
He hasn’t been on a collar and lead very much since, so for the last few weeks, I’ve taken him out one a week to teach him how to lead and not be scared. It’s a slow process, but thankfully I have patience. He seems to like this harness more than his collar.
Keeping his cool.
Getting too warm, and trying to keep cool.
Ben can do many things - jumping isn’t one of them. He still can’t jump onto the quad.
Maybe when he’s older.
