You will meet dogs on walks, you will either make friends or not get on to well, if you make friends they may offer you to come with them somewere such as the cafe or park, you can chose yes or no. Making friends with other dogs and going to the park or gym will make your dog enjoy his/her walk better. Let your dog wee in the bushes NOT on the path, people will tell you off and you will lose trainer points! When your dog poo's on the ground make sure to pick it up, no one likes a messy neighbourhood! Sometimes in the bushes your dog may find a present, if not he/she will either roll around or wee. Often on walks you will see piles of rubbish on the path don’t let your don’t munch on this! Give them nice fresh food at home when they’re hungry.
