Boxers think, learn, and process differently than other breeds. This was my first board and train with one and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching this guy puzzle out the commands. He is very sharp and fast to learn and FUNNY. I think more than anything this week has taught him that it is fun to listen. I hope his days of rewarding himself for bad behavior are over and that he will learn to look to his person for praise.
I loved my week with this sweet guy who gives the best hugs but one thing is for sure. He is a house dog. He will be so happy to be back home with his creature comforts and no longer sleeping in the training room where his roommate sometimes steals his blanket (I always take it back for him). He loves being inside with the people, that's for sure. I know Harley will make his mom proud!
