|Hey there, ladies.|
We decided to bring out the long leash on Sunday, after adjusting the length and tying knots. Initially, I was wary of whether the clip would unexpectedly unclip, as his red leash does from time to time (good thing he has two!). Nevertheless, recall training surpassed my expectations of disastrous selective hearing to maniacal sprints and zoomies!
I have to say, he does the most hilarious facial expressions when caught on camera. Sis is still fiddling with the camera in regards to action shots though.
We've been working on recall for a while now. Previously, his recall was "come" which was soon poisoned when he stopped responding to it and when it was used in frustration by everyone. After changing the word, practising it in the house and backyard and making sure that I only said it when I knew he would come, we headed out to the park. Bobby sure is enjoying his extended freedom where he can sniff to his heart's content.
And graze on grass like a cow.
These shots were all from today. Whilst the leash did tangle and he did need a gentle tug on the leash a few times, he performed marvellously. Much better than I had expected. Got to watch out for his zoomies though!
Hopefully, he'll be trustworthy off-leash soon. Meanwhile, a few pictures of Bobby posing:
