Tonight at the training club our class was practicing a 3 min, off leash down/stay. While our little group of 5 had just started, the puppy class and pet class took a break, kids were running, pups were playing, dogs were walking by and getting drinks all within a few yards and Stosh was doing such a great job. He was so interested in all the activity but never moved an inch until 2 mins and 56 seconds had passed and he just stood up. Never made an attempt to go anywhere to investigate all that was going on, just stood up. Not bad for an 8 mo old pup, but still. So close...:cry:

What got me was that there was no reason- I couldn't blame him if he got up to chase the playing puppies or follow his best friend over to get a drink. Guess we'll practice for 3 mins and 15 secs at home. His best friend is a 5 mo old black male gsd named Kobe- name after the basketball player not the beef

Thanks, I was impressed that he stayed down with so many things going on. I mean it was recess for 30 dogs but us. He's getting to be a good boy.
