Thought I would give a progress report on Caesar. Black Working Dog type, not as big as I had hoped, but very smart... Brag brag brag... Smartest dog I have owned at 61... I really feel blessed, he is not a huge dog, but very smart and very good company, being a Director I even take him to work every day. I really do feel Blessed...
14 weeks, 18 kg, 39.7 lbs, ears coming up, Barks a big dog bark, protective, tries to herd cattle, sits, stays for 10 seconds, and fetches nearly 100%..
Gift for You: For any of you that are having trouble with the STAY part, here is a very good training method.. He wants out of his cage, tell him to SIT. When he does, tell him to STAY as you go to open the cage. If he moves, close the cage in his face and start all over. This works very well, and after a days of this, he will sit and stay, and you hold the door open for extended counts 10 sec, 15 sec and so on.. Then when you say OK or a free command, give him a big love up and rub all over.. This carries over to going outside, or coming in, or getting food, make him sit and wait for your command OK!!
Anyways, that is my gift to you, and here is the Pup, my new best Mate:
And here is a favorite, the stage when their ears are propped up against each other....
Kind regards from Australia
