Alan is a sweet natured guy who really is a good boy, just young. He needs a vocabulary to allow his owners to talk to him when he accidentally makes the wrong choice. He is a big ol' puppy and he's a goofball to boot so training him is a lot of fun. He is learning on a pinch collar for a couple days before we introduce him to his remote trainer which will make him extra happy because he really wants to play with the other dogs!
Today we learned Heel/Autosit and Implied Stay and we started the Come command. He isn't autositting yet but he is sitting with very little prompting. His leash manners are pretty good to begin with so he took to Heel nice and fast.
For now he is snoozing in his kennel next to Bonnie and we will move on to Down and getting slightly better with the Come command tomorrow. We love Danes around here so this week will be a blast.
