Tacoma has been a pleasure to have. He has such a great manner to him. He has learnt well his commands; I have taught him to "Come", "Sit", informal "Heel". I got him retrieving a bumper but since he is still a pup, he wants to play some. At home he is well socialized and I can take him anywhere. He was lightly introduced to water and he should have no problems with it. As for birds, he loves picking them up. For a puppy, Tacoma has done a great job. In a couple of weeks, he will have to go home but maybe I can work with him some more in the future.
