Late posting for this week (a week late actually, going to try to catch up several posts together). We had a week of good weather, let the kids take a week off of school and spent a good bit of time working on leash skills. Things are coming along, doing better on the down-stay, sit, and LLW/heel. We even got some work in on “in front” blocking. The big break through for last week was “settle”. Lad now defaults to laying next to me on the floor when I am working on the computer and when at HOQ he will “settle” when I ask him to. He will also lay down by my feet (or on them) when I stand to talk to people. It isn’t perfect, sometimes he gets excited and distracted, he is still a puppy but this is huge. He is coming along very well and I am very proud of him. We will continue work on his “settle” as this is a big command for him. I am going to find a good blanket for him to use.
