Dear Joan: My dog, Wanda, is taking chemo for lymphoma and fortunately, she’s doing great. I’m trying to get her on nice trail walks several times a week, and this raises a question.

My habit is to walk on the left side of the trail, with Wanda on a leash to my left. This way, I’m between Wanda and other oncoming dogs and their people as we pass. Wanda loves everyone and wants to jump up on them, and this helps me control her.
