Like many of my boarders he has developed the habit of laying down automatically in the Heel instead of sitting automatically. Sometimes this happens because Down is overworked or inadvertently praised more than Sit so I am
upping his praise for the sit and cooling it a little in the Down to see if we can clean that up before he goes home.
He is a good boy and his work ethic has been impressive especially when considering he is younger than I typically accept for advanced obedience. He is going to grow into a really steady and stellar dog with just a little bit of maintenance on his obedience from his people.
