Ai is crate trained and has spent all day in his crate while owner was working without having accidents. Ai was friendly and allowed all handling during his initial medical exam. He walked nicely on leash for his relief walk, no pulling. Ai held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, body soft. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, slight wagging tail. Ai followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body soft.
