The wind! The smells! It's too just too much!
I don't know if this happenes to anyone else, but on really windy days, I can't compete for Chance's attention during our walks. He is all over the place, pulling and tugging with his nose every which way. When I make him sit for pulling, it is like he is in this dreamy trance and we actually sit there for 10 minutes at a time. We must have stopped 10 times more than usual due to his pulling. Whatever the breeze was stirring up was filling his nostrils like cocaine. He looked higher than a kite. And anxious. Bouncing off of ever tree and blade of grass to be found. It was like an alien came and took over his body and brain.
I didn't see any other way out gaining his attention, unless I was to constantly feed him treats for the rest of our walk, so I turn around, cutting our walk rather short and followed this intoxicated dog back home. It was just a little more than I could handle today.
Come to think of it all of the dogs were quite restless today with the wind blowing all day. More than normal. Wonder what the heck was in the air.
Has anyone else ever noticed this drunken affair with the wind? Do you have a hard time getting your dog's attention when this happens?
