We won dairy entry for the day today again:) We went to Tubbs to buy some decorations for the dinning room and ran into a man who is retired from training police K9. He asked a few questions to me about Thad and told us how well bonded we were for him being so you. He also said he hadn't seen a dog that young so well behaved. He told me with some more training I will be receiving from the new trainer I hired(we start tomorrow and I got her through the obedience club I belong to so she is only charging me $35 a session)he should be good to go in about 5-7mons. I don't know about how quick or slow it will go but it was nice to hear. We worked on public access stuff today and sit, down, with me.

Went to get my new glasses today and man can I see good. I told Thad under the desk and he did. Training is finally looking like we are getting some where. I just think I expect to much perfection for a dog so young.

Worked on comes when called and he is getting so much better at that off leash. We also worked on retrieves and that still unfortunately still needs lots of work.

Got Thad all dressed up in his SD harness and had him do work like if he was out in public with me. Thad peed on command for me this morning.

Thad and I went to court yesterday with my brother for his divorce hearing. Thad behaved great at first and just laid down and then a phone rang in the court room and he let out one bark. Thankfully we were on break and I just to him for a walk and he was fine after that for the next hour or so. When the judge returned we broke till 3:30pm so we went home. I ran him once at home and we took a walk around the court house before we went back inside and he just slept the whole time. I was so proud of him I gave him a treat once we got home.

Went to train today with Maureen at the Glenn's. Thad worked when we were letting other, therapy dogs, get petted and love on and us letting people know he was not to be petted. It was different for him not having people pet him or him being able to love on them. I am trying to get his focus on me and show him I will be the one loving on him from now on when he is in uniform. After that we let him run around and play for a while out of uniform with the other dogs. He just loved it socializing with other dogs besides his brother and sister who do not play with him. I think she will be able to train both of us well. I was taught about my tone to make it softer and less military today also and to talk quietly to him more. Rub him more and be tender with him. I am having a hard time since the loss of my last service dog getting the proper bond.
