Renn will turn 20 months old. I think he brain tuned in. He is becoming such a good boy and is getting more and more freedom in the house because of it. I am not as worried about him flying thru the rooms and knocking my husband over, lol. Well he isn't perfect but he will now walk most of the time with a few hops. I am taking him out more in the yard to play, ball is his favorite toy. There are times when he wouldn't bring it back or would run way with it but we now have two balls and when he brings one back I throw the other. (he has to drop the 1st one first) He has even started to come and let me grab his collar then go off again with his ball. This is all good progress to me. Taking it slow and easy. He also doesn't need his pinch collar anymore. I do put it on when in the street though but he doesn't pull at all and when he sees people and another dog he sits at my side or in front of me. He still has to watch but he does not get overly jumpy anymore when I turn to walk away he just follows. We sit in driveway and just watch at times and he is feeling more and more comfortable. We also do the Susan Garrett its your choice, and hot zone. Still working on that but he will now stand or sit and wait for something yummy to appear.We also play tug but he isn't much of a tugger but he is getting more into it. I'm getting nothing done in my house LOL. Plus we have had health issues going on in the house, He is my dog and really wants no one else. My husband walked by yesterday called him over to pet him and Renn got a bit overly excited and kept running back to me and sitting at my side. I told him it was ok and to go say hello, eventually he did he sat for a pet from my husband. I have also started my daughter to work or just play with him a little while I am out, once I come in he will run to me and sit at my side. We are getting there.
