The best part of Stewart's day everyday is our evening walk. He LOVES it. It's not always the highlight of my day ... but sometimes it is. I definitely unwind on our walks and enjoy the fresh air.
I know Stewart was an "old dog" when he came to live with us, but we did teach him new tricks: sit, stay, drop, shake. He knew a few things like not getting on furniture ... which we've totally ruined.
What we cannot seem to break him of: jumping on house guests and the excitement pee. Maybe it is just the Springer in him, but I am convinced we can at least break the jumping on house guests. He weighs almost 60 pounds (yes, he is a HUGE for the breed) and could knock you over without much effort. Its absolutely obnoxious. Of course he is perrrfect when its just us at home, but I hate feeling like I need to restrain him or put him up when company comes over. Why can't he just be as he always is with us!?! So any dog-whispers have any tricks for "down dog" and "no leaks please"?!?! Xoxo-BLC
