Andy is a little more than 7 months now. We take the exam next Saturday for our obedience class. We have to pass before we can move onto intermediate class. Andy is doing really well, I am the one holding him! He has finally gotten the barest understanding of fetch and tug, which helps keep him happy and engaged.
He continues to be phenomenal in public. Neutral to other dogs. Aloof, but tolerant, of strangers. He even does so nicely with my cranky 8 year old Toy poodle.
He is scary smart. Not much of a cuddler, but his eyes never leave me.
