Not sure if anyone remembers my posts about a month ago, but I was having trouble finding a pet sitter.

Well a little update if anyone was wondering what happened. I now walk my dogs all by myself YAY!. Corona is now ok with being seperated from Bronx (her man!) on her walks. And my pitbull puppy is doing fine too. She will be going to obidience school soon, so that should be fun for both of us.

So far I am doing ok :)

Thanx to everyone that tried to help me :thumbs up

So glad to hear it! Was it anyone's recommendation, or did you find someone on your own?

No, I just took it one day at a time and the first while my brothers friend was helping me and then after I tried a few times on my own and everything went ok.

I can't say it's easy but when you love your dogs you keep trying until you work something out that works out for all of us :)

One quick question, now that we have to muzzle them when we walk our dogs, do they have to be muzzled even when they are in your backyard ?

T. Not if your backyard is your own, not shared by anyone else, and it is adequately fenced. Imnot sure exactly what "adequately fenced" will be exactly. So far I dont think that its been defined...anyone else know,,,I dont have a yard so I havent been following that part of it.
Glad to here your doing so much better walking with your dogs! ENJOY :)

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, my fences are always strong enough for them not to be able to run away. So I guess I don't have a problem with that.

I am really having a hard time muzzling them though :( I feel terrible doing it. All three of them look at me like I am a monster when I do muzzle them and it makes me feel sooooooo guilty!

I know this is terrible, I am already starting to introduce Rocky to them but I always have a really good reward once he wears it,,,like I take him to a special place were he can play off leashm off muzzle! Im glad for your pups that you hav e a yard and will not need to muzzle them outside all of the time. Those of us that have apartments have been trying to figure out how to socialise and exercise them for months and still don't have adequate solutions. (his plastic cage muzzle made his nose bleeed It must be too big, poor boy...gotta get him another one
