Great news! The injured paw is almost completely heeled! His inmate trainer works with him in 20 to 30 min intervals going over basic commands. Chief knows hurry, let's go, kennel, wait, heel, here and bed very well! He is slow to respond to stay, sit, and down, but his inmate trainer knows that Chief will be responding like a pro in no time!
Chief's inmate trainer says that training Chief has given him a sense of responsibility and pride. He is looking forward to watching Chief grow and learn how to live life as a retired family pet.
