a walking stick

so i was hiking with cash this AM, and i found a sweet walking stick....

i started using it as an extension of my hand to kepe cash 's head even with my legs, and it definitely worked.

i had to remind him often, but he respected the boundary for sure. he tried to walk around it by going far outside of me (hes on a long drag line when we hike) but i was curious to see if it would work so i shortened up on the leash and it def did the trick.

so all the way up the trail was "work" time for him, and on the way down i let the line loose and he was allowed to run ahead.

im going to try it in the AM on our neighborhood walk, ill probly use an umbrella or a lacrosse stick.

ill let you know if it helps at all with the leading out in front.
