|The rare sighting of a sleeping bear|
Our biggest challenge seems to be his very independent nature. Bubba just doesn't seem to care if he's being praised or cursed. I am very grateful he's not a sensitive dog as I've had enough of that! But I would like a little more care for my opinion!
Training is going pretty well. We even have a little stay on his mat with distractions and handler movement. I was proud of Bubba for making it through a full hour of being a good little bear at World Team Tryouts this last weekend! It helped that the bleachers allowed him to sit right next to me and he ate a bully stick for the last portion. Of course then the puppy limit was reached and into the car he went.
