The common idea is that the walk is there for the dog. That is being equivalent to sniffing, playing, excitement, fun and so on in most peoples minds. Unfortunately this is a human interpretation that leads to miscommunication and often contributes to to behavioral problems.

How to stimulate your dog detection dog workingWhy? Because the dog is leading and the owner is following with this attitude in mind. You actually have a great opportunity at hand with assuring a proper walk for your dog. You can give your dog a job, a purpose. Which is important for its well-being. Did you ever consider why working dogs hardly ever show any behavioral problems? One reason for this is that working dogs have a job to do. And that job is clear and precise in the dogs mind. When they are in working mode, they focus on their task and forget or rather ignore everything else.

If you nevertheless think that the walk needs to be fun for your dog, consider that your dog is having fun 24/7. It does what it wants most of the time. So fun and doing what the dog wants is clearly not something your dog is lacking. Besides the right time for your dog to do what it wants is when it is off lead. On the lead is ideally a different story, for your and for your dogs sake.

Mila is waiting for that special friend to come hangout with her on the beach or in the park. Puppy trainer suggested friends to get rid of some of my energy and help with socializing.

Hi All,

Am originally from Palmerston North and Peepi has grown up running at the Manawatu river, his and my favourite place to go adventuring! : ) Have been searching Auckland to find something similar but am not having much luck in finding a never ending bridal track like that in Palmy. Does anyone have any ideas of something similar? Would be great to find a really big area for my big dog to play in rather than the little parks that are classed as 'dog off lead areas'. They just aren't big enough for a good walk.
Cheers : )

Hi there,
we are a professional couple with an English Pointer looking for a house to share with 1-2 other dog friendly people. We live in Birkenhead at the moment and would like to stay in that area.
So, if you want to rent out your house or you are looking for someone to move into your existing flat or if you are keen to join forces to find a nice place to live in - please get in touch with us.

Hi, I am a recent film school graduate and the proud owner of Tigger, a 8yr old retired greyhound.
I am shooting a self funded short film on the 23rd of January 2010 at the studio in Wellington. This will be entered into short film competitions and festivals.
I would like anyone interested in volunteering their greyhound as an extra to contact me by e-mail -
I am also desperate for greyhound crates which I would need for the 22nd and 23rd January - to set up the set!
Any extra props such as muzzles, collars, racing vests will be much appreciated.
I am happy to talk to anyone interested about the script/story and what will be happening.

I was just wondering if all the dog exercise areas listed are fenced. We took our dog to the Pt Chevalier one today and it was great - all fenced off so the owner can relax while the K-9 has fun. Any help regarding this would be much appreciated.

I would like to go on holiday to Gisborne with my dog, but from first glances it seems I can't really go anywhere with her. Any ideas where we can go on decent walks?

I am struggling to find good places to walk my dog where I can take the pram as well. Western Springs is an example of the ideal park for this purpose, but it's a long way from the North Shore. Can anyone suggest any good parks with lots of well formed paths where I can take my dog for a decent walk without having to subject my baby to a very "bouncy" off-road ride!

I'm new to the Taranaki region with a very lively 11month old chocolate lab. Does anyone know of any good walking/exercise areas? Anyone in this region interested in joint dog walking. My beautiful girl (Harley) is very sociable and we have done the first stage of obedience classes.

Most of us have probably been down that road; standing in a cold wet park in the middle of winter in order to teach our companion the basics of behaviour. Then, within months of passing the course, it's back to the old tricks. Share your tips and trciks with others.
