    Love the pic of Bella! How did you guys get her not to bark at people on the trail? I have a 6-month-old puppy and I’m starting to take her on some short trips, but she is soooo interested in other people/bikes/dogs. As soon as she notices someone coming toward us, she thinks they’re coming to see her and gets super excited and starts barking and pulling for them. I’m trying to figure out how to get her to ignore them, but it is hard!

      It takes time. I think because we were taking Bella out so much that she FINALLY got used to it. When we first started taking her hiking it was hard and we picked trails that weren’t crowded or busy. Then she started getting better and we did more popular trails. She has off days where she’s sometimes barking and anxious about everything but overall she does really well now. My advice is to just expose your puppy to A LOT. All the time. People, walking in the neighborhood with kids around, going to dog parks. I think we waited too long to expose Bella to a lot (she had some issues with socialization when we first got her). More exposure has been good.

    That mansion is something else!

    I am getting back to lifting this month as the temps start dropping. It will be a change, that’s for sure!

      They do tours of the mansion. I did it a few years ago.
