Thad and I practiced stop and sit at heel and come when called. we stopped by my daughters to drop off Easter baskets for my grandchildren and the at the store to buy hot dogs. Thad and I practiced more after I fixed the hotdogs as treats and he loves them and did so much better.

Boy have I gotten lazy. LOL I have not written down any of the training I have done this week. We have not left the house this week but have been working on heeling. I got some hotdogs last week from the store and Thad seems to think they are gold so he is working real hard on this right now. We have class tomorrow so we will see if he has gotten any better.

Went to my dog training class tonight and learned downs at heels and turn abouts which is going the other direction while keeping your dog on your left side. practiced this morning on the heeling and sitting when halted or stopped.

Worked on leave its and place. He did good on the leave its till I had him lay in the middle of the treats then after a little of not he finally ate what I asked him to leave. I will keep working on that. Also worked on the come when called with hand signals and stay till told to come with hand signals. He is doing very well with those and just can get better with the distance. He also does well on the halt and sit when in a heel and lays well too. Still working on place he would probably get a 4 out of 10 on that.

Went to our last puppy class again at Red River and they said since he has already taken 2 puppy classes and is calm and knows all the commands he might be ok to go to beginners class a month early. Cool because I want to get him on to being further trained before he thinks its ok to socialize always with other dogs he sees.

Thadeus and I ventured to the vets today to get heartworm and fea/tick meds then went to PetSmart to get him a grooming appt and BooBoo nail/ear appt. We decided to sign up for the intermediate class for Thad so we could go over sit stays, down stays, place, come when called and work on distracts better. I kind of like the way PetSmart teaches better but want to get into the beginners class at Red River Obedience because when you are half way through the class you can join the center and have all the practice time you want with your dog. Plus there are some classes I want to take after I have him take his CGC. He could probably pass now but I want him to be able to pass mine, my standards are tough he is a service dog after all.
Today we worked on sits and we had a doggie door put in and even though he has never used it anywhere but the grass we are out of practice on use it on command. That still needs work. watch mes, and sit are good he sometimes get lost on downs only at home around other dogs but it is still furstating.
I went to a therapy appointment and my therapist son has a SD also so we introduced them and let them hang out for a little while. It was so funny Thad is a SP and loves water and she has a fish pond in her back yard and Thad decided he would go swimming:)

Took Thad out on leash after he ate and he used it both ways for me on leash. We worked on sit, down, stand, come, front and forward. He did real good at everything we worked on today. Need to work on drop it later today.
