I have never had a rescue dog before. What I have learned is that they take patience. The temptation is to push them to improve.
He has been working in Rally and Agility, He loves the tunnel and constantly wants to go back to it. These are things that he does for us and with us.
Yesterday was a milestone. Alfie for the first time left us and went out in our yard without us. It was a very brave thing for hlim to do as he ordinarily will not break line of sight contact. He also for the first time went and got a plush toy and played with it. He has also started to chase the little lizards that abound here in Florida.
He has turned out to be the best of our three standard poodles.
