A Weekend with Wendal

We had another weekend with Service-Dog-in-training Wendel.
House training has come a long way and we didn’t have one accident this weekend.
He’s still a little mouthy, trying to hold your hand when you cuddle him or jumping up to grab your hand when you play with him.

he’s very well behaved in the car

His possessiveness has vastly improved and we can now actually play with toys with no growling from Wendel. He is still a little possessive of food though – even growling if Penny sniffs the bag of food we brought home for him!

Wendal got lots of attention at Hobby-X and he was so well behaved

Wendel got lots of attention at WODAC and he was so well behaved

Wendel was worn out after working at the SA Guide-dogs stand at WODAC last week

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 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.
