We met Leo on a walk, recently, and asked if this charming and well-behaved Havanese would serve as our model for an article Penny was writing on Urban Canine Good Citizenship. He and his personal manager agreed.
Here he is in one of his prettiest, most well-mannered sits.
You can see that Leo has mastered the art of paying attention.
He will lean in and follow any hand holding a treat. Such a smart boy!
He is one of those rare models that will follow the camera and offer the photographer many angles of his beautiful face.
And, as he put on this show of excellent canine behavior, he had an audience. We had all just met the little Maltipoo Wolfgang. With Leo for a tutor, Wolfie (as I think many of his friends will call him) will soon be showing off his own brand of outstanding urban puppyhood.
Watch for upcoming Sunday Dog posts on both Wolfgang and Urban Canine Good Citizenship!
Thanks for doing a great job with both the modeling and the tutoring, Leo! See you soon out in the park.
