Im so proud of my boy, he learns so fast, and all this training is really paying off! After working on NILIF with him (tethering him to me and walking around - making him work for everything) he is really shaping up to be a good boy! He naturally is just my 'shadow' now..and follows me everywhere, and is always watching me. He listens to "NO" and today I taught him roll over in less than an hour
He learned shake recently, and since then is ALL ABOUT giving us his paw, he loves making me proud! Anyways, he has been learning to heel, is walking much nicer on a leash, and since working with the prong and desensitizing him to the cats, he IS improving (albeit slowly) with the cats. Today, he barked at them for 5 minutes, watched them, and then fell asleep, while me, them, and him (crated) were in the room for two hours. BIG improvement!! He also knows what I DONT like him doing when it comes to the cats. He is learning so nicely, and there is hope for this situation!! Im just really proud of him, he is so intelligent, and cannot wait to see what possibilities unfold for us in the future!!
