We are progressing with training. He's such an eager learner. This afternoon I was able to step back five steps, hold it for a few seconds, then come back to him and release him from his sit. Yay! That is a lot of progress since Thursday. We also practiced leave it- it works beautifully with a treat, but ahem... he didn't leave my shoe alone, nor did he drop it...he did trade for it though! We also tried a down stay and the first time he wasn't interested in staying. The second time I stepped back and then back up to release him in a rocking motion and it worked! I'm hoping he will master this as well soon. This is something his trainer hasn't taught us yet. He's a good leash walker!
