Well we are winding down Charles's time here. He has done well here and I think he is ready for his owners to take over. They will need to give him guidance more than anything. If he thinks he can get away with ignoring commands he will go ahead and ignore them.
Today we worked on our off-leash Heel and his Autosit was a little sloppy again but by the end of the work out he had cleaned himself up. He has "bad breaks" sometimes and instead of stopping clean when I stop he sort of oozes a step or two. But this habit is easily managed and cleaned up. We also worked on his Down from the Front and at first I thought he had forgotten how to do it (since yesterday) before I realized that the stinker just didn't want to lay down on gravel. I made him do it on the rocks once since I had already given the command but after that I moved him to the grass and he did really well again. Someone is a bit of a princess.
Tomorrow we are taking his go-home video and his glamour shot for the yearbook. He will be thrilled to see his people on Friday!
