Wow, this morning Scout was feisty.  Up at 6:20 I took him out and let him do his business.  Then we just went for a short walk down the street. When we got home it was dance for food as usual and after he ate it was like someone lit a fuse on him.  He just rocketed around the living room with toys and bones.  I took him down stairs for a while so he wouldn’t wake up Michele and Emma.  Down stairs it just continued.  We are moving Zach’s bedroom to the basement and the trundle bed is held down with plastic cable ties to that it doesn’t pop up when we are moving it, Scout saw the tails of the cable ties and thought that they were a great thing to grab.  After I replaced one and cut the tail off two others so he wouldn’t get one we ventured back outside.  Again did his thing, sometimes it seems like the pent up energy signals that he needs to go out, but when we got back inside he was all over the place again.  I have been working with clicker training and the book Pat Miller’s “Power of Positive Training.”  He does have a pretty good recall and I was working that this morning when he would get away.  He comes flying back, ears flapping in the breeze, and skids to a stop in front of me.  We also have the sit pretty good and hope to reinforce that this weekend, next will be down.
