A Weekend With Wendel

We had another weekend with Service-Dog-in-training Wendel.
The Glugster picked him up from SAGA on his way home and as usual he was as good as gold in the car.

His issue with possessiveness has vastly improved and we can now actually play with toys with no growling from Wendel. There was one funny incident though, on Saturday morning at about 3am Wendel threw up, not a lot, but he got awfully protective over his little puke puddle when he saw Riddick was waking up along with me!

We had a couple of piddles inside the house this weekend so his house training is really coming along – he does tell us he needs to go out but if we make him wait he’ll go and piddle on the lounge floor.

Wendel is such a gentle soul, and he always crosses his front legs when he lies down.

His manners have come a long way too – all the dogs have to SIT WAIT before I let them into or out of the house (thats Wendel in the middle with our Riddick and Penny), or through a closed door inside the house. Wendel now waits for myself or my husband to walk out the door and then follows us outside.
He also does a beautiful SIT WAIT for his food, he’s letting go when I say LEAVE IT and he is responding brilliantly to SPEAK as well. He’s a really quick study and I can see why the trainers at SAGA are all smitten with him.
