Barrett had kind of an off day today. Plenty of his commands were fine but he also made many silly mistakes that are below the level of obedience he has been giving me lately. He would not come when called, instead he would try to hide behind chairs or other things not designed to hide a large shepherd until I corrected him and made him come back. He also would not hold a sit but would ooze to the ground and lay down when asked to Sit. Both of these behaviors are easily corrected but Barrett should know better. I am chalking it all up to a bit of over work and just a general crummy mood. Tomorrow he gets the morning to relax in his kennel while I am in church and the evening will be spent at the farm where he can enjoy a recharge. I am sure his obedience will improve after a little rest and a good romp around the countryside.
Even with his weirdness today much of his obedience was spot on and he is still doing a good job. We are all allowed to have a bad day and I am sure that is all this was. Barrett, I love you but you are a weirdo.
