Last night we walked to the park. Not just for exercise, but to use the playground equipment. It provided many different surfaces, tested Monte's balance, and hopefully builds his confidence.
We have been going often enough that he knows the routine: up the steps, across the bridge, jump up, back over the bride, through the tunnel and down the slide. He is almost to the point of running the course by himself.
To add some variety, we walked a half mile to another park that has a few different pieces of equipment. The tunnel is longer and he races from end to end to get treats. Monte wins the award for "Best Puppy Across the Wobbly Plank." He is much better than any of the other dogs. I can't walk across without using the railing and he zooms over it. He seems to enjoy it and it's great practice.
