Now what do you say about a dog who knows all of his commands (even stay)? Mitch has made so much progress in such a short time, will stay while his trainer goes to the other side of the room then come on command! He loves to play with squeaky balls and is learning the fine art of gently taking them from your hand. Mitch also will put the ball down when he is told "OUT" so you see this is one smart fellow. This boy is a fun loving dog who (although excitable at times) will please you any way he can. Great family candidate!
