This dude is going to achieve off leash status within within the next few months. He's hard wired to be sticky and stay close to me. In comparison, I've been working with Nami on off leash for nearly two years and I wouldn't trust her off leash if someone gave me a million dollars. Her shibatude is still intact and unless I have something that pleases her, she doesn't care. Not to say she won't ever achieve it, we've gotten over a lot of her prey/hunting drive that comes with the breed through repetitive training, which was my biggest concern since it's hard to snap her out of it, she just lacks the motivation to always be by my side that Kuma has had since I've brought him home.
