Rules for walking dogs that you might not know
Columnist on LA Times spoke about the fact that in the United States there is a dog walking etiquette that beginners often do not know. Further - from the first person.
The first time, when I was walking my dog, a mixture of dachshund with a pug, a woman in black heel heels approached me and mumbled: “So cute.” I thanked her for the compliment, after which we stood for a while while the dogs sniffed each other in obscene places. Then, for some tacit etiquette, the woman took the dog and went away. I never saw her again.
My dog Chule 5 months, so I'm new to the rules of dog walking. I still have not mastered their basic codes.
Your role is to be careful during the pheromone greetings of your dog. You should not share any personal information with the owner of the other dog. If a short conversation happens, he will confine himself to dog chores and a name, as a last resort.
I walk with Chulei along the lake not far from my house. I am new to my area and never know what my encounter with other dog owners is. There are those who avoid even eye contact and drag their dog to the opposite side of the sidewalk. There are those who pull their dog to mine to introduce animals. You can meet those who with good eyes stops near the dog and asks about the breed of the pet and its age.
Once Chula rushed to 2-month-old puppy. The dogs originally sniffed each other and then began to play. During this, the woman said that she had only bought a puppy and asked if I had any tips for her. I said I know a great vet. She answered in silence. Chulya began to wind circles around her dog, at which her husband looked indignantly. He took the puppy, and we all silently parted.
Sometimes I try to normally greet someone with a dog. “Sylvia, right?” I asked a real estate agent on a recent walk. “So cute,” she said, looking at Chula. She looked at me questioningly: "Corner house, right?" Before I could answer, she introduced me to her dog spirit: "This is Maxi and this is Chloya." Then she asked Chuli's name and continued her walk.
I have noticed that dogs impart a certain degree of rationality and social awareness to their owners. One day Chulya dragged me to a woman with an English Labrador and a hound. The woman pulled the dogs back. “Unfortunately, she hasn't been vaccinated yet,” she said. “Until we get her vaccinated, I don’t want to see other dogs around her.”
The good news is that dog owners no longer worry about forgetting their dog poop bags. Fortunately, in my city - Hollywood - all this is on the streets.
That's how good times began for dog owners. For most of us, they are not just pets and helpers. Today the dog has medical insurance, passes a therapist and wears accessories. This is an eternal baby for those who need those who can be cared for.
