Ripley is doing a bit better with the Heel than Ruby but he hesitates quite a bit if Ruby is in the kennel and we are walking away. He is very devoted to her and doesn't like walking off from her. He will do it but very reluctantly.
He is also making mistakes here and there because he tries to anticipate what I am going to ask him to do and so when I am planning to have him to a Sit/Stay he assumes I am going to ask him to lay down and does so prematurely. But he corrects easily and we can get him back on task quickly.
They are wrapping up soon. I have a few more days to try to get Ruby a bit more confident and clean up both of their obedience commands. Luckily they are both rockstars at Come and at their radius training which is the most fun for them. Placemat is also fun for them because it involves snuggling in their bed. Tomorrow we are going to start filming their go-home video and we are going to keep practicing.
