We have been to numerous low distraction public settings (stores, clinics, restaurants, etc.). Without exception I get comments about how well he behaves. When he is in his cape and not subjected to intense diversions his behavior is really good. He settles easily and usually goes to sleep. High distraction situations are still a challenge as was demonstrated at the Bones & Biscuits function where we spent most of the time there working on connection.

We are spending most of our training time on recall and leash work (on and off). Other obedience commands are reinforce in appropriate settings but we are not actively working on them. His response to them is usually solid.
