While out today two different people in two different locations complemented the packs behavior. One lady was walking by as we were standing out in front of a store waiting for Amie to come out. As she passed she said "Dogs that actually listen, that's wonderful." The second person was a lady behind us at a pet store. She was very respectful remaining calm and not getting the pack all riled up. She stated, "Your dogs are so well behaved. It is nice to see that. Most dogs are not because the owners do not take the time to train them." A well-behaved human talking to a well-behaved pack is a perfect combination.
Mia is currently learning the "wait" command, which means stand still. I use it to stop Mia from sniffing all around tangling up all of the leashes and eating random things from the ground when we stop. She is beginning to learn the concept and did very well on today's walk.
In case anyone is wondering about Spencer's shoes, Spencer has always had a habit of scraping the top of his nails on the ground as he walks. It has caught up with him and he has worn his nails down a bit too far. The shoes are to allow his nails to grow longer. Silly Spencer. Maybe the shoes will teach you to pick your feet up just a little higher.
