Hes not much of a problem barker anymore, only every once in a while but he stops if told to. Now that im done with that ive been working on recall and at same time im starting to work on dog aggression.
My recall lesson went well today. Im training him with "Here" instead of "come", so its special for me and will single him out if he was in a group. Also it happened by accident, because i was telling him to come and it was working horribly, then when he would finally come he would bounce around and i would say "Here! Get the treat!" And he would take the treat and run away again. Then he started to ignore the "come" command but come running for treats if i said "here". So that will be my command. :)

Ive been taking Paddy to the dark park every other friday opposite of the fridays he gets his bath. Turns out he is not dog aggressive, hes just highly barrier aggressive. He is nice to the dogs at the park, he wont play with them or really react to them at all, but he doesnt hurt them at least. Im hoping after a few times of going he will start to learn how to play with the dogs instead of just his people.
His hair is on a roll with growing now! On his face its just long enough that it pokes his eyes and constantly needs adjusted, but its just short enough that i cant get it in a clip or tie yet. His body hair is all like 3 inches now. Such fast growing hair. I found a detangling spray at my LFS and it makes him smell like snuggle and helps me brush him easier everyday and prevents matting because the longer it gets the easier it tangles.
I wont even go there with his beard. Ill just say bearded dogs that are sloppy eaters are the most annoying thing ive ever had to deal with. Brushing those mats out every night... O.o
