Indigo Makes Progress on Walks

Documenting Indy's progress on learning the ways of a free dog.  What dog doesn't love to go for a walk?  Well - the world is just too big for a puppy mill dog.  When your days are all the same at a puppy mill and you know what there is to be afraid of, then the freedom of taking a walk in a big and unfamiliar world can be overwhelming.

On her first walk with us, she was very nervous.   This video is about 4 minutes long.  Further into her walk she smoothed out and walk fairly normally.  Seeing kids on bikes freaked her out and I had to pick her up.   I can't wait until she finally relaxes and enjoys her walk.

1st walk - Feb 8, 2015

Today she took her second park walk.  She has been going at night with us too.  She won't be a fan of them anytime soon but she is less nervous about getting in and out of her crate.  I'm still extra cautious about getting her out.  

2nd walk - Feb 14, 2015

It will be real progress if her tail is eventually high and waving.  Although I can't say that ever happened for Gracie on a walk.
