He has learnt a lot of commands in the few weeks we've had him, Sit, Stay, Heel,
Go To Bed, Down, In, Out, No, Business (ie you can do your business HERE),
coming when called is coming slowly as he's a defiant little thing and won't do
so if he has something more interesting to do, and our sitters while we were
away had been chasing him to catch him if he wouldn't come so it's just a big
game to him now! We're working on 'Speak' (Bark), but as he doesn't do so very
often it's proving tricky! 'Fetch' is an absolute dead loss and leaves us
laughing every time, he really doesn't understand why he should fetch you
something you just threw away, if you wanted it, why did you throw it away!?!?
He's just TOO clever sometimes, he comes galloping back looking pleased with
himself and thinks 'fetch' means the same as 'come here'.
He had his final shot on Dec 17th with the rabies, so our next door neighbour
with 2 spaniels is going to take us out with them to play in the sand in the
desert later this week, as he knows a place without much litter.
