Today we had fun. It was so beautiful out that I decided to take him for a hike. We went about 4.5 miles and he finally started acting a bit tired.
Tomorrow is back to work as usual. I am looking forward to starting him on his remote trainer. This is a dog who will definitely enjoy the freedom that the remote collar allows him. I plan to introduce the collar tomorrow and hopefully remove the leash either tomorrow evening or the day after.
I am very pleased overall with how Artex is doing. He sure does look sharp doing his commands and he seems to enjoy praise, though he does also still enjoy doing his own thing. Smart boy!
