What our goal is this week is to give young Dakota some self restraint and some training. He just doesn't know what is expected of him and I bet once he does he will shape up into a really wonderful dog.
Today we started work on Heel/Autosit, Down, and Implied Stay. He is doing well though of course making some mistakes. He is confused about Heel but is doing well with Automatic Sit. His Down is okay in the house but outside he wants to play! We will be getting him used to his new commands and to the idea that sometimes he needs to work instead of doing whatever he wants.
I am looking forward to teaching this big doof what he needs to know to be a more enjoyable house dog. Welcome Dakota!
