Promener vs se Promener etc

I don't understand why "You're taking a walk with Greg - Tu promènes Greg." was marked as incorrect in the quiz. My dog Greg is very affectionate. Am I missing something or is the question wrong?

Hi Robert, 

If I have understood correctly it all depends who Greg is.

If Greg is a dog you will use, 'promener son chien'

Je promène Greg ( mon chien)

If Greg is a person you will use, 'se promener avec'

Je me promène avec Greg (mon ami) 

Hope this helps
