So Kassa and I worked a lot on "Come" and "Sit" on the weekend. Running right up to me on a "Come" and then "Sitting" and then treat. However Sunday he broke down a bit. He was coming but he was confused between sit and lay down. I think he was tired. When I got him home I re-enforced the sit again in the original locations he learned them. He seems to only want to sit on grass and not on the driveway etc. It will take a while to get him to distinguish that location does not dictate what I want him to do.

Well Kassa didn't get a lot of walks this weekend. I considered taking him to a trail however I thought he would enjoy the time more off lead at the ball park. This of course is entirely independent of the fact that I got slammed around so much in Judo on Thursday and then again on Saturday that I was having trouble throwing the ball let alone hiking.
He also road around with me on Sunday as I did errands. He was fine in the truck for the few mins I had to run in and sat and lay down nicely for me during the ride. Kassa has also taken to sitting on the couch with me. He isn't a touchy-feelly dog in that if a couch is free he will take that one.. however at a certain point in the evening he prefers me and my couch to his bed.
In the mornings I go for my shower. Without fail I find Kassa laying motionless on the floor as though he has been shot. He will just lay there perfectly still while I get dressed etc however the moment my feet hit the stairs he is up and following me down.
