Default Do y'all ever get comments?

When you're training your dog out in public?

It was a nice day out so we hit the park. The football fields were empty so I brought out some jumps I had in my trunk and we practices recalls and stays mainly. A few 2 jump jumping patterns. Played ball with Mia- that kind of thing.

It just tickles me how many people stopped and asked what we were doing, why we were doing that, wow they are so attentive! Etc.

Uhm... Not really! Although we had a few nice comments yesterday about what a good dog Bodhi was, and that she was well trained. We were walking on a path called the precipice walk (for obvious reasons), and whenever people came past she came back to me and would sit up on the hill so they could pass (very narrow path). She can be good when she wants to be

Yup. When I pull out the weave poles at home, everyone walking by stops. It doesn't bother me at all - maybe it will inspire more people to go home and work with their dogs.

Oh yeah I definitely don't think it's a bad thing- quite the opposite. It just made me feel a little bit tickled.

Yeah. Even at home...I mean I practice 600' off the road behind house & barn and I had a neighbor stop me while walking dogs to say "Your black one is really fast on that obstacle course you have!" lol

I sometimes take jumps to the park. Lots of people stop to chat. I always think it's super cool

Oh at the old house we had room for either about 2 jumps or 6 weaves in the backyard. Had a 6' privacy fence and when we practiced we'd have neighborhood kids lined up at the fence peering through. Always cracked me up. I think they really thought we didn't know they were there.

Not really training, but playing around dock-diving tends to draw a crowd. Back in 2011 we took one last visit to "our" lake before we sold our house...so my last time in the state (had already moved but hubby & house were in the old state and we visited a lot). It was 4th of July weekend and my last chance to get a decent pic of Mira dock diving at our lake.

We were there about an hour, actually jumping maybe 20 minutes. By the end there were about 50 people watching from shore including a guy playing a guitar as we jumped plus fishermen who'd pulled around then stayed out in their boat to watch instead of pulling in (there were other docks besides the one we were using).

Just made me laugh. Mira got a lot of love when we headed up the shore but tbh it was lost on her...they'd pet and she'd just look from me to the lake and back again...
