Russet has been enjoying his time at home: going for walks by the canal with his “sister” Maui, wrestling with her on the grass (goodbye snow!), and having naps in the afternoon sun. He has come with me to work only a few times, so we have been practicing his “go in” at my desk at home.

For online puppy class, we have been working on breaking down the “here” command: playing name games to get his attention, “this way” to call him towards me, and doing a straight-on sit in front of me (using parallel 2×4’s to help with positioning).
