His obedience review is going well. We are using a slip leash on him for now and he is responding well to gentle encouragment. Sometimes he still gets overwhelmed and scared but he is not reacting aggressively, more than anything he just gets really clingy and asks for comfort. It is important that I do not comfort him when he gets like this. Instead I move him on from his fear and ask him to do something for me (like "sit" or "down") and then he can gave a chest scratch.
I hope to introduce Placemat tomorrow and to do a little more with his obedience. Somehow tomorrow got extremely busy for me though and so we will see how much work I am able to get done. If nothing else we will get Placemat started and take a couple obedience walks to sure up his skills. He is a good boy and he is settling in, I think.
