SAMSON CONTINUES TO GET IT...


Samson's personality and deportment continues to evolve. Today, I took him out for his first walk with a conventional collar. The past week, I had used a head collar called the Gentle Leader, which really seemed to help me manage Sammy on our walks. Today, I used a simple collar and while he lunged a couple of times after squirrels and the like, he was pretty manageable. I think that he is starting to realize that this is now his home and that we are the new members of his pack. As you can see from the photo to the left, Sammy is "dog tired" following our three walks over the course of the day. Dee will take him out alone tonight after I pick her up from work to train him that she and I are the Alpha Dogs of this new pack.
