Yes!!! FINALLY!!!!!(+ review)

Progress!!! I am so proud of Chester. It may sound like I'm overreacting, but after three months of pushing on the brakes for walks, Chester is finally going on walks consistently and, believe it or not, happily. Today, I took him on a walk two times around the cul de sac and was right by my side, happily trotting,(even though it was a really gloomy and rainy day today) and no pulling. Yesterday he did that too. We are using EasyWalk harness on him, and it is working remarkably. Our trainer recommended it for the class. And where in the thread title I said (+ review), I was going to mention in puppy classes when were working on 'drop it', 'leave it', and 'take it', Chester was the star of the class - acing every single turn. I love bragging about him...

Hav to hav a Hav!!!

Great work Ruth and Chester. It's so much more fun when you can be relaxed on your walks - I knew you and he could do it.

I'm impressed with the drop and leave progress as well. Charlie will leave boring things OK but no way will he leave anything he's interested in - particularly paper tissues which just get shredded all over the yard.

Doesn't sound like you're overreacting at all! Kudos to you both!
