He's a very smart dog who is extremely quick and very play driven. I feel really bad that he is going to waste as a cow dog since we don't really have a herd to work him on at this point. We try to keep him entertained and from getting too bored by playing lots of games with him.
It really helps that he and Chandler absolutely love each other. They play constantly. It is funny to see a hound trying to be as athletic as Cailen. If Chandler didn't have Cailen to keep him moving, he'd be lounging on the couch eating bonbons. He could easily turn into a slug. Chandler has tried to teach Cailen the art of baying so they can be a really noisy pair at times.
