Last night he spent over an hour on his bed with other dogs milling around, the TV on, and 5 people eating dinner around him on the couches. Tonight I plan to eat dinner on the floor next to him while he is on his "bed" command but last night we had no begging, thievery, or whining. We did however, have some pouting.
He knows what he needs to know now. We are proofing the off leash with the long line and are going to take him into town to put everything to the test. Overall, he is doing very well.
