Nice!!! Super foundation for a good, calm, solid hold! His OB will be a joy to see when you get to trial with him. He is just so happy and eager to please you.
I'm a bit surprised that you let him drop the dowel for the tug? One thing that I'm careful with when I dog dowel/Dumbell work, is that I never let my dog drop the dowel/dumbbell. Of course, in the beginning, they sometimes do, but not because I want them to. If they do drop it, no big deal, I pick it up and try again. They have to hold, and release when I tell them to. I use "give" for a command. I trick them too by putting both hands on the dumbbell, but not ask for a give, so they have to hold until I do say give.
I just wonder if letting him drop the dowel for a reward, if later on that would give you issues? Never tried it your way, so don't know.
Love the last little bit!!! too cute, and very much like a certain sable that I know, LOL.
