People have told me that Tampa is a great city but people don’t live downtown. If true,that is not apparent from walking along the Tampa river. People walking their dogs, children running like crazy in the playgrounds and teens skateboarding are just a few examples I saw while strolling along the river on a Saturday night.
I watched this young lady training her puppy along the Tampa Riverwalk. She was very patient and I noticed she alternated between treating the dog and praising her dog while training him to retrieve. I have always thought that is the best way to train your dog so the dog doesn’t expect a treat each time they perform a desired action.
Last week we went to see Itzhak Perlman at the Straz Center in Tampa Florida. It was wonderful to see a true master that is so accessible and funny. Before the show we walked along the Tampa Riverwalk and plan to return to visit the Museums. Nice job Tampa!
