As a dog mom, I believe that it’s necessary to spend quality time with each of my dogs. It’s a good bonding experience, and you get to know your dogs as individuals. When my three dogs are together on an outing, their listening skills decline and they act like monkeys in a circus. Take them all separately, and they are perfect angels. While we’re working on the whole “going out as a group” thing, I spend one-on-one time with each of my dogs. Today I took Wynston over to the Riparian Preserve for a relaxing nature walk. Perhaps I will start a new blog series – Mommy and me Monday!
Wynston walks slow, sniffs a lot and pees on everything. Today I just went at his pace and let him lead the way. Some may argue that I shouldn’t let my dog be in control, but whatever. Sniffing is very mentally stimulating for dogs and I wanted Wyn to have a great time!
Along our journey, we spotted several animals. Luckily Wynston isn’t one to chase them. We saw bunnies, desert mice, ducks, many birds and lots of other dogs out walking. Wynston is so composed and perfect when meeting other dogs, and it was fun to be able to do so without Khloee going nuts.

Wynston and I had a wonderful morning. Wyn is so low maintenance and easy. I got to take lots of photos because he’ll just sit nicely despite distractions.
Do you spend one-on-one time with your dogs? How often? What types of activities do you like to do?
