One thing to look out for with a dog like Rudy is that he will back slide if you let him. He needs reminders and he needs support from his family to know when he makes a mistake and when he is doing a good job. His remote helps a lot to gently nudge him when he is making a mistake and he is such a love sponge that giving him good feedback is super easy, you just have to remember to communicate with him.
We went for a nice long walk at the farm and took his go-home video today and tomorrow we are going to practice Placemat once more before he goes home but other than that his big job will be to play and get nice and tired for his go-home lesson. I bet he will be very excited to see his people again. He was a fun dog to train and I look forward to our follow up lessons in the future.
