He is very silly and playful and so our biggest hurtle is to simply keep him in working mode. It is very easy to distract him since he has such a hunting dog nose. I imagine keeping him on task will be something his owners also have to work on when he returns home.
Soon tonight it will be his turn to practice Placemat. This is a big exercise in self restraint for him since his dog friends are out and around while he is on Placemat. He gets a little bored but that's not necessarily a bad thing. For an impulsive guy it's good for him to learn that a little boredom isn't the end of the world. Patience is a virtue and we will see how patient we can help him get.
