Do Your Dogs Walk Solo or Part of a Pack?

If you've ever watched a dog walker take out a bunch of pups at one time, you'll spot "pack mentality" at its finest. I'm always surprised how my pooch — who usually thinks he's walking me — acts totally differently while ambling with a bunch of furry pals with few entanglements leash-wise and behavior-wise, too. Have you ever had a pet taken out in a pack or does he prefer solo strolls best?

Solo. My little Jack Russell always tries to fight other dogs, I would be too afraid of walking her with another dog. Not only because I'm afraid of fights, but because I like paying extra attention to her. I'm always afraid she's going to start a fight with a big dog and get herself seriously hurt.

I have three dogs, so they are walked as a 'pack' my default. I think dogs could get more out of a walk (use as training, etc) solo, but there are also benefits to the 'pack activity'.
