Cyrano and Dawn have become a great team. I remember way back when Cyrano was a wild child with over the top excitement. Â He had way much more excitement than what should be legally allowed for several dogs. When he greeted other dogs on a leash, he literally did standing Parkour flips.
Dawn spent the time necessary socializing and training him enabling him to earn a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate. Â Now they are regular attendees and calm greeters at Awesome Adventure group dog walks sponsored by the Michigan Dog Trainer. Â Dawn has a new goal for her and Cyrano and that is for them to learn how to track. Â Whether done for competition, search and rescue, police work or just for fun; tracking with your dog can be a fun activity that will deepen your relationship with your dog. Â It will also serve to provide your dog with much needed mental stimulation.
Pictured here is Cyrano stepping out on one of his first tracks. Â What activities do you do with your dog to provide him/her with mental stimulation, physical exercise and/or to deepen the bond with your dog? Â Please share in the comments below.
