Monday Jason was sick so we decided to try it again Friday and we just practiced at home. Went out in town yesterday and practiced. Today we started working with his harness on walking, heeling without sniffing.

Yesterday Thad took the day off from practice because I had not slept the night before. I am just like a drunk if I do not sleep, so I go no where and do nothing.

So far today we have been to church. It was breakfast Sunday this wk and he did a excellent job laying under the table quietly the whole hr.
Practiced some when we got home and plan to go to a meeting this afternoon and practice more before bed.

He does a 5 min down-stay with me out of the room!!!

Yesterday I had Thad do a down stay and went around corner for 21/1 min, had him follow me everywhere I went and sit when I stopped. Today we went into town and practiced sitting every time I stopped, sitting when I was in line at checkout and moving when I moved, then him sitting under tables. He did a pretty go job for this being his first time do this in public.

We went to the food bank this morning and Thad did really well. I've been working on sit, down, stays, under, light, and come when called with him lately. He touches the light switch I placed on a board but still not consistently and his stays are long but when he is sitting if his head goes down that means he's going down, I say nope and he switches his body a little. We still have a long way to go but is showing improvement.

Went and practiced today with Jason. Thad is doing so much better just after the first 2wks with him. He Showed me some more things while working on stays and being more consistent with lower softer tone in my voice.
We practiced some later on at home. I let him play some before we went to a meeting at RROTC later on that nite.

We went to Sunday School today and he was so good. Went home and he played for awhile. Then went to a Sunday meeting and I had a confrontation with my sponsor, she did not call when we were suppose to meet and did not show she said I just don't call, Thad sensed my tension from that so we left. (I just felt to uncomfortable after that) We instead went walking around different stores for an hour and half to make sure he was real tired because we also had Thanksgiving dinner ate church. He did so well at the dinner that when it was over several people told me how well behaved he was. We went home and he had done so well he just got to be a dog the rest of the night:)

Yesterday and today we worked on same commands but today I tried something different I used a softer voice and had better luck. He seems to have the light command down without using treats he touches it now.

We went to the Goodwill and bought some sweats for me and PJ's for hubby. Then we went to the Board Walk and walked around looked in shops. Thad and I were tuckered out by the time we got home and took a nap.

I was sick yesterday and today but tried to work anyways today.
Thad is 11 mons old and when practicing he does not hold a down the whole time. I get up to eat, use the restroom, chores, and smoke outside. It is getting frustrating today cause he is pushing me to the limit cause he always has so I guess I just have to hang in there and be consistent. He is getting really good at touching the light switch(which is on a board about his nose length right now). He also is doing a good under tables at this time. I plan to see if I can find a program that will help me with financing for Thad's training.

Thad and I continue to work on him being on a hands free leash connected to me doing sits for 15min and down stays for like an hour everyday for at least three hrs at a time. Sitting every time I stop no matter what for and going everywhere with me in the house. We also work on light a couple of times a day and loose leash walking. We are working up to building his time on the leash working. I am also working on getting him to go on command more frequently. Our bond has grown even more since I have been doing this training more with him. I believe this trainer maybe the one only thing is he cost an arm and a leg so I will just have to do without a lot of luxuries like getting my hair cut and stuff like that for a while.
