The truth is, Alvin’s training began the moment he stepped in the door of the Wyckoff Road Doggie Hotel & Spa. But, now that he’s beginning to settle in – and his health issues are stabilizing – we’re steppin’ it up a notch on his manners and leash walking.
ALVIN SEZ: What are these “manners” you’re talking about?
LOLA SEZ: Before you get the leash hooked on, you must SIT and be calm. Then you wait until the human says, “Let’s go.” It’s simple once you understand “da rules” . . .
LOLA SEZ: When we’re outside, don’t pull on the leash. The humans will stop walking until you stop pulling . . .
