In the afternoon we worked our obedience but not how we usually do. He was my helper in a couple lessons that required distractions. He was a very good helper even with other (untrained) dogs carrying on around him. His only mistake was that he wanted to lay down instead of sit when told to. I think he may have been a bit overwhelmed by the car ride and then the other dogs and the busy place we were working. But his Heel, Down, Come, and Implied Stay were all pretty good. The lessons were in town.
He was a very good ambassador for Free State K-9 today and I was very pleased with how he did. He also made friends with a Toy Poodle today. Though the Toy Poodle is a bit of a curmudgeon. We will say Maitri wanted to be friends and the Poodle spurned his advances. Maitri is really rounding out nicely as we near the end of his stay with us.
