After reading the latest article about isolation and walking the dog without distraction, I wanted to give a recommendation. I take my 4-yr old GSD for a one to two mile walk each night through an industrial park near my house.
I also have been known to load my dogs up and drive somewhere dog free in order to avoid the dumb owners who won’t control their dogs. When I visit my parents I load my dogs up and drive about 5 miles out of town to a big park that is almost always deserted. Their neighborhood is packed with houses and random loose dogs, it’s just not worth it for me to walk my dogs there. I’d rather drive a bit and have a relaxing walk.
