Lying in back of kennel with a relaxed body, eyes bright and ears forward. makes eye contact when spoken to. He stands up as I’m opening the kennel door and allows petting along his head and body while leaning in. Tail raises and begins to quiver. He comes forward and allows all petting for the remainder of the session. Did well today!
Lying down by the back, appears alert from movement in the room. Gets up and stretches when door opens and slowly walks towards the front to sniff me.
