Sweet Barrett had a good day today. Though he spent a little more time in his kennel than I like. We had an unexpected trip to the vet for our pit bull who is nursing a broken foot and needed a new splint. So much of the morning Barrett spent snoozing. But his afternoon workouts were promising.
His Heel is still a little sloppy but he is cottoning on to what I want. His Autosit is almost there. But his biggest success is Down. He is finally going down on command without a tantrum. He still sniffs at me and rolls his eyes in his own way but he does it. Only a few times did he blow me off completely and need a correction.
I hope to clean up his heel tomorrow and hopefully start using a long line by the end of the week. For now we are making up for lost house time this morning by watching some tv together (with Barrett trying hard to keep his Down/Stay going but he is pretty interested in the cat. Keep trying, Barrett!
