So, how do you deal with a fat dog that only walks towards the house?
Yep, that’s right. When we took the kids for a bike/stroller ride this evening, I plopped the fat dog on the stroller’s bench seat. She rode until we got to the end of the street, then I took her down and made her walk back.
We passed a few other people walking normal dogs on the way down the street. Sean was mortified. If he could have, I think he would have pretended not to know me. Whatever. It worked.
Later this evening, I took her out again and actually got her to walk both directions down the street. This may be easier than I expected!
