The Faces of the Dog Guide – Dan and Reef

January 24th, 2008 by Dan

This is Reef: She’ll be turning 7 years old in April and is a princess extrodinaire! I couldn’t ask for a better spokes-dog for Bully breeds (and *against* Breed Specific Legislation) – Reef socializes perfectly with babies, children, dogs and other animals. She does however, hate bad weather and has a variety of hooded sweatshirts and coats for those occasions. Reef is a great friend and loves to accompany me to the bar (where she is allowed in!), local restaurants (when the weather is nice), and many of the local pet supply stores. Wherever we go, she always draws attention- I don’t know if it is her dark eyes or adorable expression, but you can’t help but pet her! Reef’s favorite tricks include high-jumping on command and making an “awoo-woo” sound when you wiggle your eyebrows at her in just the right way.

  10. Product Review: Wacky Walk’r Leash | Dog Reflections Says:

    [...] Reef isn’t a big puller, but with a bit of encouragement we were able to “untrain” her for a bit of time and get her to misbehave! Yes, the wacky walker took a lot of the jerking feeling out the pull of a strong dog on the other end of the leash. However, it doesn’t provide control over the dog. The Wacky Walk’r stretches from 3 to 6 feet and there is very little you can physically do to prevent that from happening if your dog is not listening to a command (or is trying to eat a bone or other garbage on the sidewalk). There is a small tab of nylon on the very bottom of the leash (close to where it connects to the dog’s collar) that would be awkward to grab in an emergency situation. In fact, I’m not convinced that the Wacky Walk’r wouldn’t condition some dogs to pull more – the owner feels their dog pulling less, thus fails to respond to the dog pulling. [...]
