Hello again, I already posted Hamilton's blog for today but for some reason it isn't showing up on the website or Facebook.
So I will sum up just in case it is lost to the deepest recesses of the Internet.
Hamilton (or Hammie as my mother calls him) is doing fine. He is ready to start on a 20 foot line. This will give him more freedom to make mistakes than the 5' leash.
His crate training is going fine. We are going to start lengthening how long he is expected to be in it. So far there has been no kennel stress.
