Picking it up off the floor
Standing on hind legs to retrieve it off the chair
Over the next few days when I am home we will work for about 5 minutes (max) on this exercise. Champ is a thinker. He doesn't offer behaviors with gusto and enthusiasm (yet). He wags and slowly offers his new behaviors. It's a bit different than I am used to, but that's okay. They are all their own individuals.
He runs a tunnel with gusto and enthusiasm! He once did the low dogwalk for treats, but after he saw what he had done that high in the air, he decided it looked a might too dangerous. That's okay, too. Pretty soon, he will be running the dogwalk (in his own time). He enjoys watching the other dogs do the dogwalk.
This Saturday, he and his brother are going to a CERF clinic in Palmdale. I just may have to take a few pictures. His brother, Trip, is sooooo gorgeous. He looks like he should be a Border Collie model for conformation. Shhhh...did I just say that? Champ is small and still very puppy loose in comparison to Trip.
Trip looks like a minature adult. But, Champ will most likely fit on the floorboard of my truck as an adult. And, with as many dogs as we have, we need to use all available space. :0)
