|Bo and Austin leashed-up at an obedience training session.|
Strengthening Bo's bond to Austin has been a focus of our training this past week. We started Monday by having Austin leash-up with Bo when he got home from school. It involved Austin wearing Bo's leash around his wrist or ankle and keeping Bo at his left side. Bo played video games with Austin, practiced piano with Austin, checked blood sugars with Austin, ate snacks with Austin and even did homework with him. In return for his obedience, Austin gave Bo treats, rubs, toys and lots of attention. Our goal with this training is for Bo to learn that to the left of Austin is a GREAT place to be.
