While on our morning walk, Daisy and I decided to explore the Bark Park at Miner Park. Located behind the Glen Carbon Centennial Library among mature trees, a baseball diamond, and two playgrounds, we wound our way on the paved path to the entrance. Relieved no other dogs were present as we are on a strict no-sniff policy, an aspect of dog training learned at Cindy’s Critters.
Inside the chain link fence, we discovered grass void of any “boom booms” as my girls label number two deposits. Refreshing! Rules are clearly stated on the entrance gate, and the Bark Park supplies bags for clean-up as well as a conveniently located trash receptacle.
After a time, I put her back on the leash so that we could complete our fifteen minute daily training homework assigned by Master Dog Trainer/Behaviorist John Dahman of Animal Specialties. We have almost mastered the sit and stay with only two classes under our belt. Oh yeah!
