I might not like walking Brian and Lily separately, but it definitely works. Training is way easier and the progress faster. My life revolves around the dogs, so I have made changes in it first: my daily routine, the people I meet, the places I go to, the hours I work. After a hectic few months, filled with the strange sensation of not being where I wanted to be, I can finally see the order being restored: the sense of purpose and satisfaction.
I love the fact that dogs always sort my life out: they remind me of what is important, they make me stop and think, they make me take decisions I would otherwise be too scared to consider. It’s because of them that I find I can deal with much more I’d ever dare to imagine. Just having someone to rely on me is enough for me to do well 🙂
