I have decided to teach him a command to turf him off of furniture. He is allowed on chairs at home but when guests arrive he is a bit rude. I don't want to banish him forever but a command for him to get off and stay off until told he can get back on might be useful for his mom. I will see how far I can get this over the next few days and send him home with instructions to further the skill at home.
Tomorrow I hope to have our first "guest" come to the door to work on door manners. I just need to find a willing victim of exuberance.
Petey is doing well. We are doing a lot in each day to try to address all of the things he needs addressed that aren't in the formal obedience repertoire. So far he has been willing and happy to work, even if he doesn't agree with me all the time.
