Heelers were really well behaved, not lurching forward when we came upon several different rabbits. Not only that, but Willow did a lot of walking right beside me instead of pulling forward. I'm hoping for even more progress from her in the near future.
When we were just starting up Left Branch Arroyo I spotted a guy with a white hat hiking our way. I couldn't tell whether or not he had a dog so we made a slight detour up a small arroyo we've explored before. When we stopped in the shade of a yucca I monitored the guy's progress, and when I saw him enter the Tellbrook Arroyo we retraced our steps and went on our usual trek.
