Although Maggie has gotten a little better with taking a walk, she still had to be coerced at times. We switched to the extend-a-leash and she seems to be doing much better. Maybe she feels she gets more freedom on a longer leash. But whatever the case it seems to work. We have increased the amount of time we are out walking and I have picked streets that are not too busy so she can walk without much limitation. When I ask her if she wants to go for a walk she runs to the laundry room and looks at the shelf where we keep her leash happy to be going out. With a longer walk she comes home exhausted and is ready for a nap. It helps us both. She gets more exercise and when she naps I get more done around the house!
