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.

Took Thad to a new trainer his name is Jason Revere and he is the only one I have met that has service dog training in the area. He trained in Southern California and he is good so far. He showed me so things I can improve on already. We also started working on him turning the lights on by getting him use to touching a switch I have on a board. He also has me working at home with Thad by my side most the time and less play time.

Tonight we went to RROTC to practice and they where having a costume party which we watched they where so cute. We ate supper with the other members and then played a game mixed with novelist and agility and Thad came in second place!!!!

Went to a doctors appointment at 2:00pm then we went to the dog park and walked around the track. After that we went to PetSmart and had three different people hold Thad while I walked away. He lasted 1 1/2mins with the first two and only thirty seconds with the third person. (It was good considering) He was absolutely wonderful at the doctors so I bought him a new toy at PetSmart. When we got home there was this old man walking his dog and Thad and I went and said hi. I now have him shaking to say hi instead of the petting.

Went to a convention today and it was great!!! Only stayed four hrs got Thad to use the restroom outside and away from home for the first time. Saw an old friend he said asked about writing a letter to help Thad and I cool. Stopped by Domino's on the way home to try their new pan pizza, curious because I never liked them before and they stopped selling them shortly after I quit working there, it was the bomb!!!!

Yesterday I went down to the River Walk Park and practiced the CGC exercise with Maureen and some 10th grader she brought with her dog. They were an hour late so me and Thad practiced working with distractions like sitting, paying attention to me, and come when called.

Worked later tonight with come front/finish, down stay with me around corner for 2mins and sit stays with me around corner for 2mins.

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.

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.
