On two seperate occasions today, owners of two different dogs I was walking have received really positive comments from other dog walkers.
One dog owner was praised by a fellow dog owner for opting for her dog to wear a muzzle. I explained that this particular dog is such a sweet dog but has an unpredictable nature with "bouncy" dogs. Rather than risk an incident the owner very wisely uses a soft muzzle when her dog is likely to come into contact with others, such as in the park, woods etc. The person was saying how commendable and responsible it is and he wished everyone would do the same.
The second owner was praised due to the puppy's off lead recall, general training and socialisation. The puppy is only around 23 weeks old and already surpasses lots of other dogs in terms of his recall. I explained that the owner has put in a lot of work into the puppy and one of the other dog owners said "well, it certainly shows".
Very proud moments and it's lovely to be able to pass those comments on the owners.
