Raff had a stellar day with our trainer on Thursday--pics are posted upthread, including one of him in midair. His obedience was beautiful, as usual with his keen focus and amazing eye contact.
Unfortunately, on Friday, Raff became a teenager.
Engagement with the rest of the world is now much more interesting than engaging with mommy. He has chosen not to. His food drive is extreme, fortunately. So tracking is still on his to do list. He loves protection because, heck, that's just plain fun.
But obedience, no thank you.
So, we're back to square one for the moment with Raff's obedience. Back to playing puppy engagement games for awhile.
He's teething, so that limits what he can do in bite work. Lucky for me, he is the least mouthy puppy. He doesn't chew on us and he's not at all destructive. A couple of additional myths about WLs that need to die.
