It was bound to happen.
Because of the C-word, people were ASKED to stay out of the pubs.
People did not.
People were FORCED to stay out of the pubs (pubs closed) !
People were asked not to mingle.
People went out in hoards.
People have been FORCED to stay in doors !
The people, are allowed out to
- Shop for Essential Supplies
- Go to Work if absolutely necessary
- Buy Medicines
- Tend to Vulnerable People
- Exercise – Once per day !
So how is going out to exercise once a day going to work, when you have two dogs who are used to going out morning and night ?
My own training can be wound down as I’m not training for any event at present – mainly because they’ve all been cancelled.
I could go out in the morning with, say, dog A and when I arrive back home, without stopping or going indoors, get an assistant to take Dog A from me and hand me Dog B for her walk.
Each dog would get their normal walk and I would get my morning exercise (miles) in.
But what about the evening walk ?
I may have to press the other half into action to do similar, with me handling the transition !
I have a treadmill gathering dust which I may have to press into action – for me – I’m not sure how the dogs would react !
I’ve just Googled for a humorous picture of a dog on a treadmill and have discovered that there are real doggie treadmill and even videos showing you how to train your pooch to use a treadmill.
Would you Adam and Eve it ?
