Yesterday practice walking with harness insync with me step by step. worked on downs and sit stays. We went to PetSmart and let a associate hold Thad several times while I left him for 30 seconds. He did start to get stressed the last time I left him, goal is working up to 3mins. We ordered a new nylon hands free service dog leash. Went to a friends house and watched the Saints kick Houstons but. Thaddeus did down stays and did not move while we ate. Behaved appropriately the whole time we were there.
Went to church this morning and he behaved excellent the whole time we were there. Later we worked on take it. This afternoon we went to a meeting and the store.

He is 81/2 months and we went to get my hair cut yesterday, but unfortunately I have just me when we go out most the time. He did pretty good for a pup his age and only broke the down stay 4 times while I was getting my hair cut. The women at the salon on base are totally cool and supportive of my and Thad. Next we went into the BX to find a watch I keep buying super inexpensive watches but they fit funny and break to easy. So this time I bought a Timex for a man because my wrist are so much bigger now and it fits better plus I can actually see what time it is. LOL

We next went to the dollar store for toothpaste, deodorant, dental floss and toothpaste. Then I went to Joanns and got some fabric glue sticks for his patches on his new harness. Next it was off to big lots for some training & some play toys and treats. Lastly it was off to PetSmart for the fishy treats for some reason he really flips for them and I can cut each piece into 4 tiny pieces so the last a long time. He still sniffs a lot I just tell him leave it and he will stop and he is real friendly to people and I am getting more and more to ask before just reaching out and touching.

I have been real lazy about entering days of training with Thad. Every Wed. we have been going to RROTC to train with the people there on both nodalice and agility. We have gotten a 25" spring leash and dumbbells to help practice thing like over and come when called. The dumbbells we work with take it right now. I've been doing sit stays for 5min and down stays for 30mins. I let him play right after practice. He goes with me every Sunday to Sunday School and we do public work also which he is doing excellent at. I rented Team Work I from Bow Wow Flix.

Going to bring my brothers stuff he left in our garage to his house in TX and while we are there we will visit a friend of mine.
This morning we worked on watch me, take its, bring it, give it. We have also worked on sit stays and down stays. When we get back on Monday I want to work with him in his new training box for front/heels Rob made for him yesterday.
Speaking of yesterday Linda came over and we worked on the curtains and actually finished one of the windows. We are thinking of adding a extra panel to that window. Thad was just on leash in the same room as us all yesterday.
