Go get help

As helpful as Dempsey is now, he can't do everything himself. That's why he needs to learn to "go get help."

After several weeks of work, Dempsey has learned that pawing is the only acceptable way to get somebody's attention, and he knows that he must bring somebody back to me.

Pretty fun! But of course, at this distance -- about 8 feet, in the same room -- it's not very helpful. I could just as easily call for somebody. So now we'll be working on increasing the distance and adding distractions. There's still a ton of polishing to do, but this is a great first step!

  1. That looks wonderful! I like how he keeps pawing until he is sure he is getting someone to follow him. Very impressive!
