The short version is that this is a Great Dane puppy. They are smart but they always have to have the last work. Always. I can already tell I will be laughing a lot this week with Zeus. He is here to clean up his obedience for 7 days and to work on his off-leash training on his Dogtra remote trainer.
He is already able to play without a physical leash on. Which is nice because there is quite the bromance brewing between him and Ace. But he is still wearing a leash for his workouts just to keep him working appropriately. I expect the leash will come off in a few days.
For now he is howling in his kennel waiting for his last chance potty of the evening. Will he and his kennel-mate Ziva sing all night? We shall see. It is actually kind of a pretty sound, so that's nice.
