Commands

So today I started going over some commands with Mosier to see what he knows. First off, I've been working with his "wait" command (said when you put their bowl of food down, they "wait" until given the release word) with the other dogs and Kansas. I've been also working on walking around, doing other things while on the wait command. He does pretty well. He only tried to break once and it was a very subtle break.



We then worked on his "get it", "hold it" and "bring it here" commands. He doesn't do it all the way through yet. What I mean is that he'll bring it to me, but then walk past, or bring it to me and then drop it right away instead of hold it. but he's a quit learner. And I've only had him like two days!

Good job - sounds like he's adjusting well.

I like how Mosier has a tiny bowl and Annie and Tara have big bowls? And, where is Sammy?

And... why is Mosier only 1.3? Does that mean Runza was 1.2? Since you got to work with him?
