6/4: Leash walk. Upon approach was at the front of the kennel with loose body. Somewhat difficult to leash and pulls slightly on leash. Generally aloof off leash but occasionally engaged with handlers. Was highly interested in a small dog in kennel on the way back in, required two attempts to return to his kennel. 6/5: Leash walk. Slightly difficult to leash again. On the way out pulled towards a barking dog in the kennel. Generally aloof again and did not engage with handlers at all once outside. Easier to return to kennel. Will remain two behavior staff for walks. 6/7: Leash walk. Remains slightly difficult to leash. Outside Spartacus remains aloof, does not solicit handler attention and will not take treats. Continues to be difficult to return to his kennel. 6/10: Leash walk. Remains slightly difficult to leash. Once outside Spartacus solicits handler attention briefly. Spartacus also continues to be difficult to return to his kennel. 6/12: Spartacus was easy to leash. Once outside Spartacus solicits handler attention and enjoys engagement with soft body. Spartacus continues to be difficult to return to his kennel, but will enter willingly with another handler on the far side of the kennel to call him in.
