We continue our anchoring (aka tethering) with Mac and Cooper with short outings. Our most recent was to the mall. We completed two successful laps with an additional side trips through Sears (with narrow aisles) and Abercrombie & Fitch (loud noise). However, the greatest distraction for Mac was the playground equipment. This provided us experience working through a challenge and insight into potential issues. First, we must support Cooper in his anchor responsibilities when Mac is uncooperative. Second, as we waited near the playground equipment, which Mac desperately wanted to use, he was scheming a way out of the bungee and belt. Given e a bit more time, I am convinced that he would have freed himself.
In addition to walking as a team, we must practice stopping.
