I was very pleased today to see how well he has retained the foundation of his training. It shouldn't be hard to clean up his manners a little. Most likely he will benefit from some high expectations when he returns home.
It is always fun to get to see my old students again and I am enjoying working with Smokey again. He has settled in just fine and tomorrow we will be working a lot in and out of the house. He is a sweet guy who genuinely wants to get the answer right but he does tend to over celebrate at times. It's not a terrible quality to have in the long run. He certainly makes us laugh.
