He tries really hard, bless him, but he is still a puppy and very much the class clown. We had a good off-leash workout in town today with no leash and no fence. But we had to get him into working mode first. He really really really wanted to collect sticks instead of do his commands so we ran through them first on a leash then he was ready for a good 10 minutes of hard practice. On our walks he is pleasant and rarely pulls. In a Heel he does well. In a leisure walk he gets distracted with puppy business but he is easy to get back.
Tomorrow we are doing some farm work before he goes home on Saturday and we are going to make sure to get some play time in for good measure. He is a spunky guy and has been a lot of fun these past two weeks.
