No really, he is 🙂
For all I say he’s annoying and a handful, he is adorable and excels with certain things.
For example just today an old-ish man appeared from around a corner, the spitting image of the alcoholic who used to live above us and would come into our flat and chase Kasper as Boo growled at him (don’t ask, it was horrible >__< )…well, what did Kasper do upon seeing him?
He turned, locked eyes with me, and waited for instructions!! So proud ^__^
And yeah *sigh* look at all that white nail I could clip off if he didn’t detest foot handling…I really need to crack on making the extra large scratch board and see if he likes using it as much as puppy.
He’s a crate lovin’ guy these days, no matter where it is!
And the thing I adore most about him is that when something’s going on (eg. wrapping presents) he will take himself into the crate and offer to chill out in there, because he knows he gets lots of rewards for that and it is worth his while! He ignores almost any distraction to take himself into his crate 🙂
Best of all: Kasper is a snuggler!
He’s not OTT super obsessive about it like Zoey though, he can take it or leave it, but when he does snuggle comfortable it is just the best!
“Ah this is a nice sleep, but if only there was someone to cuddle…”
“Ahhhh, much better!!”
We just had a really, REALLY awesome walk with Rey too 😀
For the first time ever he walked past a dog on the other side of a narrow road (about 12ft, no pavements) without yapping, whining or even pulling towards them!!!
We were beaming for the rest of the walk haha I’m so stoked! The training has paid off!
I think it helped a lot that the other dog (a Weimaraner) was really calm. It glanced at Raiden once then carried on, with no excited body language at all. We did a little LAT/engage-disengage, told him to “come on” excitedly once, and he was amaaaazing 🙂
Then later on in the walk he walked at my side, offering eye contact, as an elderly woman walked within 5ft of us carrying several large shopping bags. He’s doing so good!
Finally, someone made it onto the platform 🙂
