Notre Fidele Ami

I think one of the most important things that I've learned while teaching Patriot his commands is "CONSISTENCY"  He knows his commands and performs them beautifully while at home, but when we're out and about it takes him longer to respond.  I think he is interested in what is going on around him and is not focused, hopefully this improves with maturity.

I've started letting Patriot sleep out of his crate several nights a week, he "really" likes this.  He's picked a spot beside the bed that he calls his own.  In the morning (5:30am) Patriot makes "no noise" but I can feel him staring at me.  If I don't open my eyes and pretend that I'm still sleeping, he puts his head on the bed and starts breathing in my direction.  This is what I wake up to on these mornings......

Patriot's Snozzola!!

He makes me smile :) and that makes the beginning of a GOOD day!

He wants to smell or touch everything with his nose.  I've been working with him to keep his head up while we're out on our walks and exposures, it's proving to be a little difficult!
