Thanks Carole! I will start today. It sounds like fun. I was pretty sure this would be your recommendation but what I read on Leerburg just made me unsure since he is 100% solid on come in the house. Looks like Blade will have alot of delicious cheesburger pieces in his future!
Since I've got you here, I have another question. Is it detrimental to my training to let Blade stay out in the yard unattended while I'm working on this? He absolutely loves to be outside but I'm wondering if leaving him out side to enjoy himself without me there makes too much competition (ie- it's just as much fun or more to be outside alone than it is to be with Mom). I also wondered if it could be a form of self rewarding for him.
