      I don’t know where in Pennsylvania you are, but if it’s near NJ, you might want to consider contacting Linda Brennan, who is an instructor at Top Dog in Flanders, NJ. Not only has she won the National Obedience Championship with her Lab, Heart, but she has also had Welshies for years, and has one she is showing in the beginner classes now. Even if you can’t do a class there, I’d bet she would do a private lesson/consultation and give you some breed-specific tips.

      Here’s the website with her contact info. It’s an old picture, but it’s even one of her Welshes with her! 400 Bad Request

      Edited to add - I don’t know why it says Bad Request - the link works perfectly fine, LOL.

He seems significantly more chill when he had at least one walk a day outside his yard. Even if it's only for 15 min. I wish he could have more play dates. That would be awesome. We recently had a play date with Archie's brother, Cosmo (he lives in NYC and was visiting in NJ). They ran around none stop for about 2.5 hours. Archie was an angel for like 1.5 days after that lol Furthermore, I love taking walks. And I really, really would love for Archie to walk with me. I haven't had that with Jules (my choco lab that passed) for such a long time. I miss it.

      I had to look up what a flirt pole was. Yes! I can tell you that he made one out of our tree bush lol We have a few Thuja Emerald in his yard that are half dead and hanging to the ground. I was going to remove them but Archie LOVES to tug and play with them so I just left them.

      He graduated his kindergarten puppy class and we're now in a Puppy Basics 1 class. I can tell that this instructor will fail a dog. I don't want to pay to repeat this class. It aint' cheap! So I'm starting to get paranoid that Archie will not develop the attention he needs soon enough. Maybe I should chill. The class is 6 weeks long and we only had one session so far.
      You can do it. It just takes time and patience. I think leash walking is actually pretty unnatural for a dog. Frankly, it takes people, good trainers, less time to teach their dogs advanced obedience exercises than it does to loose leash walk. My dogs have always been pretty good, but I am, if anything, a very consistent trainer. I have my faults for sure, but lack of consistency is not one of them. I get what you're saying about wanting to go for walks. I also walk my dogs for my sake, not really theirs.

      Nothing wrong with re-taking classes. In a perfect world, you'd re-take the basic obedience class a few times. So yeah, just chill.
