On yesterday's hike with just Max and Maya, I was barely able to control them both when they spotted a deer. Today we stuck to dry, grassy trails for better footing, open area for less chance of deer spotting, and I put a prong collar on Max that I could switch his leash to if necessary (it wasn't).
It was a good walk, not a lot of other people around, and Trooper kept up better than he has in the past.
