Kato the sheltie is here for a weekend of leash manners and Placemat. He is a sweet young dog who Noah, the ever giggling 1-year-old, is absolutely fascinated by and determined to be friends with. Kato has patiently put up with his affections.
Today we introduced Kato to his small pinch collar and we learned how to Heel and Autosit and also how to leisurely walk on a loose leash. He isn't perfect yet, of course, but he is getting it very well.
We have not started Place yet. I plan to do that tomorrow. He is still a little clingy and wants to sit under my chair so as soon as he is feeling a little more at ease we will ask him to sit in the greater room and hold his spot.
I like this dog. He is a fast learner but is definitely smart enough to be a little snot sometimes. But he is funny and a good worker. Welcome Kato!
