Well EL D made it through his obedience class! Hooray!
I honestly thought he wouldn't make enough points (he hated going to class and would get stubborn in class even though he did well at home) but he really surprised me. He lost points on down/stay (wouldn't down and wouldn't stay) but shined on all the other commands. In fact, surprise surprise, his sit/stay was perfect! He sat with his eyes on me the whole time (1 minute) - when other owners would snap their fingers or coo their dog EL D would twitch but not move otherwise. I was really happy.
I was going to take a picture of him with his ribbon but he chewed it up before I could manage the camera
