If you were in AZ I'd totally try to convince the vet I work with to take him She has a mini Aussie/ACD mix already and she loves merley things They don't do sports, but they do hang out with horses, and do horsey things.

She's not necessarily looking for another dog, but she has made several "want!" comments when merley things were available

ME TOO. A part of me is saying "I really want. I really want. I think I should just do it". Because I want a herder, but was scared of getting a dog TOO crazy for me, and he really sounds perfect for me as far as energy levels go. But I'm not quite there. We're moving sometime in May/early June and it would just be a bad time to add a dog at this very moment.

I added a dog while living in a pop-up trailer 2 months before moving 1,000 miles. It can be done.

If you wait for the perfect time, it'll never come. The time is never perfect.

Blinker is working on a bunch of stuff! He really is extremely smart and now that he's getting more comfortable with me, he's starting to push boundaries a bit (just what I want to see!).

Retrieve
He's bringing back toys!! Even better? He's very good about switching from food rewards to toy rewards without skipping a beat. Very good to have for future training!

Tug
He's initiating tug, even on a rope leash. He's really starting to get into it now, doesn't mind getting pushed around either. He initiated a game of tug with his leash today at work while there was a really noisy agility class going on. Good boy, tug is fun!!

Dog Catch
My goal with this is to get him thinking about his whole body. When I got him, he wasn't even ok with putting his front feet on things or people. So far he will jump into my lap while I'm sitting in a normal chair. He's gaining confidence which is great!

Balance Ball
Again, trying to teach him body awareness. He's ok sitting on it and will jump from a stool onto the ball willingly now. He will jump onto the ball from the ground with a little help.

Sit/Down
He kind of had a sit before, but it's much better now. He just learned down this morning and is rocking it!

Mat Work
Just started mat work this morning. He's williingly going back to the mat, we are working on having him offer a down.

It's Your Choice
He offers eye contact during It's Your Choice in a variety of places now! I think this is pretty generalized at this point.

Nose Touch (hand or target)
Started this to introduce clicker training, he's getting it! He does give up quite easily though, he's still not completely sure what the point is.

Disc Work
We are working on bite work at this point. He loves chasing the disc with rollers but isn't confident to grab it. So tugging and bite work right now. Building drive as well.
