Koda knows that even if the gate is left open, he is not to leave the backyard without permission. He's so good!
To test whether he'd follow me or not, I got ready for work and headed out the gate to the car as I usually do in the mornings... only this time I "forgot" to shut the gate behind me. He's such a good boy for not following me!
The first time i realised he does this was when I walked out the gate heading for the grooming room to give Koda a groom... i didn't call him to come because I thought he'd just follow me.... It wasn't until I got to my grooming area that I realised he hadn't followed me and was patiently waiting at the gate for me to say its okay for him to come.
