it is VERY CLEAR that this dog knows he is HOME. thank you for helping him, and many blessings to you.
There's no words that can describe how much love and joy he's brought into my life.
Besides the basics such as down, sit and stay (which he's got down now) I recently taught him to speak on command, and further more I taught him to "speak" when I ask him if he's hungry or if he wants to go for a walk. It's pretty dang cute. Also, ever since he learned to speak and subsequently learned that a little barking is ok, he's been a lot more vocal in general which I love. I feel like he is even more comfortable now and his personality grew (or came out) a little more.
Here's some pictures I took of him playing yesterday
