Today we started with Heel/Automatic Sit, Implied Stay, Come and Down. He was happy to walk but got pouty about having to go at my pace. He started Auto-Sitting quite fast and he enjoyed the praise he got for that. He seems to know down a little bit but he is very unsure about whether it’s the right thing. He likes Implied Stay a lot. I think since he is still slightly uncomfortable here he is happy to stay wherever he gets parked. We will see if this gets harder for him as he gets happier here.
For now he has settled into his kennel and he ate his dinner tonight so I think he will be feeling much goofier tomorrow. I can tell I’m going to enjoy training this fellow. He is a sweet guy and he enjoys right answers. Should be a satisfying week. Welcome Ollie!
