    DefaultIt's prong collars for Mitzi and Judy

    The last few months I have been walking them on Martingale collars every morning, and we have passed many rabbits, squirrels, chipmonks, dogs, a bicycle club, and some people. They never bolted, and if they pulled toward the item of interest, a simple "Leave It!" was all that was needed. Yesterday, they ignored me and bolted to a lady who was walking in the opposite direction. They didn't jump on her, but just smelled her. I apologized and she was very nice. Today, after a good scolding, they're walking with prong collars. The same lady walked by just as we were leaving and they really wanted to go to her. I don't know what there is about her that attracts them so much. All I could think of is that she somewhat resembles my mom who passed away three years ago when Mitzi was 3 and Judy,1. They both stayed with her all day while I was at work.

    I think that's it. The other woman reminds them of your mom and that's sweet that they want to go see her! Maybe when they get used to passing her, you can go back to the martingales!

    Does sound like this woman looks like your Mom.

    It is amazing how great they can be and then 1 day something triggers a response and they have you flying around. I just can't imagine walking both dogs without the prongs. 1 at a time with a martingale yes, but not both together. I find they tend to feed off of each other's energy on our walks.
