|First 6: yuccas|
It's impossible to believe that they're not going to pursue fleeing animals, but we want to ameliorate their instinct as much as possible. We can't accomplish that goal by having them on lead all the time. On the double-plus side of the ledger they both were excellent for the duration of their freedom, hiking all the way down Middle Branch Arroyo and all the way up Right Branch Arroyo without lurching forward. They received plenty of treats for this good behavior.
We took a ride after our outing, cruising through several nearby neighborhoods to see the sights.
