I am sort of running into little issues with Bernie because he is getting a little sloppy and doesn't react to commands immediately. When I change my posture and make a more dominant body language display he does in an instant. I do not want it to be like that though, I want it to be easy listening and following commands. I am taking another class in February so I am hoping that this will help brush up on obedience and get more bonding with us and Bernie. I want him to listen because he wants to please me not because he is afraid of me.
