He comes right back every time I call him but he does not come in a straight line. True to his bird dog heritage he comes back to me by taking a sweeping circle, usually counterclockwise.
He did a little better with Placemat today. He still needed a lot of encouragement and was still afraid but it was not as much of a fight as it has been. We are going to practice this some more tonight.
Either tomorrow or Saturday he is getting to go on a field trip into town. He has been such a gentleman out here on the farm I am sure he will do fine on Mass. and such a striking dog is sure to attract attention.
