Warmer weather brings great opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with your best friend, the furry one, that is.  When walking or hiking in parks or on open space where dogs are allowed, it is always best for birds and other wildlife to have your dog on a leash under your control.  Pets running loose are often drawn to the rustling or movement of birds, and may flush a bird off a nest, accidentally trample a nest, or cause a bird stress and the wasted energy of having to fly away.  A well-trained dog will resist such urges and remain close to you, giving you the chance to enjoy the birds as your dog enjoys the fresh air and exercise.
