He is so big it is easy to remember that he is still a puppy who is learning how to live with us but if we keep in mind that everything we do with him, every single interaction, is teaching him how to live with us. We are always training him and so we must try to keep in mind what we are reinforcing and what we are discouraging.
He is a bright dog and a good worker. I look forward to our nice long walk tomorrow and to work on Placemat with him tomorrow afternoon while I get some office work done. Overall he is shaping up just fine.
