I've neglected this thread for far too long!
Due to the weather, training's been put on a complete old. We've had snow for months, now, and it doesn't make things easy - especially when lunging/moving around is so essential. With that said, we've learned a lot about the big guy.
And, much to my dismay, his name has somehow become Dufus
He is dominant and pigheaded, but I love him. We had some haltering issues to work through - it was taking an hour to halter him - but he finally came around and will now meander over when I call him. Thank god.
His weight is coming up too, which is lovely. I was comparing pictures from when we first got him and the difference is present, which is nice.
First few weeks
Somewhat recently (ignore how wet he is, the snow was bad)
And now, without further adieu, allow me to spam with images and videos.(; They're not all recent, but you get the jist.
As for video... I suggest muting it, because mom & I are having a conversation in which I repeat myself multiple times because she can't hear. The only action is in the beginning and near the end, though Willow's face in the middle is hardly approving. She was very wary of Dufus being in her spot.(; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONp8ogS6ZFM
