How to get the most out of walking your dog.
Few people pay attention to their dogs when walking with them, Ive noticed. Ive observed this on many occasions, but the point was brought home rather forcefully for me recently. Just the other day, I spent the better part of a warm, late afternoon in an upscale Bay Area neighborhood, in an effort to take some pictures of the many dog owners I knew would be out walking with their dogs. I was hoping to take a good picture of a relaxed person and a well-behaved dog, walking calmly on a loose leash and a plain collar. I wanted the picture to illustrate the article that appears on page 8 of this issue.
