It's been a while, I always hoped to keep up with the forum but that plan fell through quickly!
I'm here with a brief update on Arlo (Nina x Jay spring 2016), he's been great, recall is still iffy but we're working on it. I have been noticing some of the anxiety I've heard mentioned with these dogs, nothing as severe as others but he does get so anxious when leaving the house (he LOVES going out, I think he just gets so excited that he doesn't know what to do and that turns into anxiety), he'll grab his collar out of your hands and run and hide somewhere. We're working on that, and he's gotten much better.
Now for much awaited pictures! (I'm terrible at formatting so apologies if this is a mess!)
