Walked Cú to a nearby park with some wide-open fields early this afternoon for some leash work - lots of quick direction and speed changes to encourage him not to pull. On the way we stumbled upon a fishing derby at the duck pond, so we got some socialization work in, too. Not that he really needs it - he's always good with people, but it was a good opportunity to walk through a crowd. He seemed a bit flabbergasted at first; he stood quietly and watched what was going on for a minute, then turned and checked back in with me - and we had a giant treat-and-lovin' party. This guy is an excellent candidate for therapy work.
We did some fun forest-sniffing on the way home. :)
