Hank had a decent day. We are still toiling with Down and I wonder if a little bit of it has to do with his minor balance issues he doesn't like laying down where he didn't choose to. Of course he could also just be stubborn. But he is fighting me a little less today. He prefers Placemat because he can choose to sit or stand or lay down on the mat but he does still sometimes get a little foggy about staying put. He is calmest when he is pacing. His leash walking is going fine as is him Implied Stay unless he is feeling nervous for whatever reason. He can get very clingy to me if something is scaring him. I'm not sure if this is because of vision issues or what but I am working on him trusting that I won't leave him somewhere dangerous. He is working hard.
Tomorrow is more of the same with Scarlet. We are going to push her obedience and make it harder for her. I hope to take the leash off by the beginning of next week but first I need her recall to be more reliable. I am letting Hank set the speed for each day but we will continue our work with him and move forward with his skills. If anything he enjoys the attention he gets while working and he loves praise.
