We all went for a long walk tonight. We practiced heeling and waiting and coming with Darwin. As much as Darwin doesn't listen, she's getting much better about walking on the leash. And she's been less of a scaredy cat and willing to walk farther than a block.
We stopped in the pet store to pick up more training treats and Darwin managed to scare a little girl and make her jump about a foot in the air.
We passed a lot of Christmas lights up and one house had a moving deer light statue. Darwin spotted it from the corner of the yard and stopped dead in her tracks.
We made her walk closer to it and she just kept staring at it.
Thank goodness she didn't bark at it, but my camera flashes made the lady who lived there come out to see what was going on. She thought it was hilarious that Darwin was afraid of it.
After an hour walk Darwin is still ready to play!
