The follow up lessons will be on leash at first then we will transition to off leash when the owners feel confident in their ability to give commands, praise, and corrections well and consistently.
The dogs seem to know this is a special day. They have been anxious and talkative all morning. Might video the reunion. 10 days is a long time to be away from family and I don't know who will be happier and more wiggly, the people or the dogs!
Good job, Maddie and Gordie!
They now both know the following commands:
Down at the side
Down from the front
Sit at the side
Sit from the front
They know these things on leash and off leash (Maddie needs a hot collar when off leash outdoors for now).
