Waco and Flidais are both obedient dogs. They do what you command. When you say "sit", they don't ask why. They are not completely robotic, but they just don't have the initiative to act out of a sense of order. They have been very good dogs to start our kids off with. Waco and Ella are a great obedience team and he is her faithful companion and guardian BUT each time I find the chickens in my flower bed, I have to go give the command to move them out. They are very good at alerting when something is wrong but they don't act to fix it on their own.
Shooter was always on duty--even when we weren't.
He consistently took care of things when we were gone. I don't know how many times we returned home to discover cattle tracks all over the property but they had been kept in the yard and off the road with no one home to give the command.
