We've been working hard on Richo sitting nicely at the door when people arrive/leave/put the rubbish out etc. and he's been doing great (albeit obviously itchy to come out and say hi!). Except yesterday when he was sitting nicely as some family were getting into their car - and the neighbours dogs barked! - then he was off down the driveway, around the fence and up to their front gate! Thankfully it was only curiosity in the dogs and not a sheer will to simply escape and run free, but it woke us up a little to the fact that he is still young, still immature, and not as far along as we thought! Time to go back a step or two.
