Yesterday I took her on a new walk. New just means going left outside of my driveway with her instead of right and taking a loop a few streets over. This was faintly alarming to her. She is wedded to 'The Walk' which is ritualistic to her. "The Walk" begins when I turn right outside my driveway and simply go up and then down the street. Variations from this are greeted with trepidation, but I want to challenge her gently and not create a pattern we can't veer from. So on the new walk, the "Loop" Bella anxiously tried to turn back a few times and didn't feel more relaxed until we approached the part of the road she knows. I'll try it again today. None of these walks are more than a mile.
