He still needs some patience with Down. He does it every time but sometimes he takes a second to think about it. I never give him more than 4 seconds to ponder his next move because I don't want to get caught in the waiting game trap. But he is gettng faster and that's what we want.
We started Place today and I think he understands the concept. He may enjoy a slightly thinner bed for traveling because he wanted to lay half on/half off his mat and it was so thick he couldn't do so comfortably. He eventually figured it out and he stayed out for about 45 minutes before I let him back up. More practice tomorrow.
George came face to face with the house cat today. He got a little boop on the nose then decided to keep his distance for the rest of the evening. I don't think that he and Kimono will end up being bosom companions but he is happy to live in polite indifference to her. And we can't argue with that.
Tomorrow is George's last day and so I will challenge him in his obedience again and work on getting to over an hour on his mat without needing a correction. He is very young and so that is asking a lot but I am sure he can do it.
