When I used to walk both Clover and Cosmo at the same time, Clover walked on the left side and Cosmo on the right — and never the two should meet in the middle. It wasn’t always easy walking two dogs at once, but we came to an agreement. They behaved, and I gave them a treat when we got home.
Lately, Cosmo has been driving me crazy with his behavior on walks. He pulls, and tries to cross over from left to right. I was pretty sure that he was trying to kill me by tripping me up and sending me flying head first into the pavement.
Yesterday, I had a revelation! Cosmo was on the “wrong” side! He always walked on the right before, and for some reason, I was walking him on my left. The poor guy was confused. He wasn’t really trying to trip and kill me, he just wanted to get back on my “right” side [sic].
