A few people have asked about how I take Hari for walks. So I thought I’d bring you along for one.
So, normally Hari lives in the garden. It’s a big fenced-in area, and he’s learned every inch of it, so he can run around freely even though he can’t see. We bring other dogs to visit him, and they play together on his turf.
But sometimes we just wanna go for a walk in the woods.
Obviously this poses a challenge for Hari. How do we help him explore freely, but safely?
woman’s voice: “Hey, do you wanna walk?”
The sound of snow crunching under boots as Hari prances away.
Hari runs over.
“Good! Yeah, you found me! We can keep going. Good boy.”
He likes to circle back frequently, get pets, and then go right back out to sniff things. I warn him if he’s getting close to bumping into something, but otherwise, as long as I can see him, he can explore wherever he wants.
audio, Hari sighing: mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
