Interesting article. Like everything else in life our walks aren't always the same...Loki loves going for walk. He tells me when he is ready. He rings the bell at the back door (that leads to the fenced in backyard), and then runs to where the leashes are kept. Most of the time we go when he wants but there are times that isn't possible. Like at 6:00 a.m. when it is 22 and I am still in my PJs. He has to wait until I get dressed. On the weekends long walks are a pleasure for us both. Occasionally when the weather is crappy and I am particularly exhausted after a long day at work or running late in the morning, his walks are a chore!

Interesting but not really helpful in our walkies. Willow is generally a good walker going down but not back. The only exception is if she is on a game trail or when we are camping and walking around the camp ground. I suppose it could be due to boredom because we seem to go on the same route most of the time. We live on a private graveled road that gives us about a 1/2 mile round trip walk. There are three other households that also walk their dogs on the same road. Plus there are coyotes, deer and elk that use the road so it's not like it is without interesting smells. She'll actively trot down the road but trying to get her to come back is a struggle. Lots of times she'll walk a few feet then just turn around and stand and stare down the road. I've resorted to bribing her with food and sometimes that even doesn't work well.
