Bentley's dogwalk progress

Just a quick update on Bentley's dogwalk.  He's doing really well.  It's clear that he is cuing off of our forward motion to get into position, but right now, it's still huge progress.  We need to continue to use target plates to keep him driving regardless of our position, but my first priority is to wean him off of target plates all the time.  In other words, I want him to be successful at a trial, even if that means he doesn't immediately get into position.  I am also comforted by the fact that he does eventually get into position.
