All dogs should be able to take a walk and visit neighbors, right? Even though he has limited sight, Teddy can differentiate between grass, the sidewalks and driveways. At first I had him walk along between me and the edge of the sidewalk without a leash and he adapted. For weeks we were walking to the end of the block and back home, meeting neighbors and their dogs when we could. As Ted gained confidence, he would venture down a driveway or trot up to a person who was talking to us. Now we are venturing farther afield and walk about a mile each time. Ted has adjusted well to the "easy-walk" harness and a leash. He keeps up nicely, is not frightened by the sound of a car or bus and is learning to respond to "sit" at each corner. Ted also enjoys fierce sounding dog play with my younger dog when they are in the yard and will happily share the sofa with my older golden when it is time for a nap. His most recent success has been climbing the deck steps without assistance!
