38 - Go happily out and about

A change of environment is important for your dog’s well being. Sadly, many dogs are almost permanently confined to the back yard, which means that they miss out on the essential stimulation of new sights and smells. Even a drive in the car in the company of his favourite human can be fun and rewarding for your dog.

The more places you can take your young dog the better. Remember to take your treat pouch, toys and clicker, and practice your skills in a variety of situations. Give him the chance to experience as many new things as possible. Obviously you need to ensure that you have good recall, and recall with distraction, before you even consider letting your dog off-leash in any public place. It is amazing how even a Slow-Mobile-Dog can get up to near breathtaking speeds when on the trail of a deer, or someone else’s picnic lunch.
