On-going training and exercise will be of great benefit.

Duke knows "Back" to back up out of the way, "Off" (to get off couch or bed) "No", "Paw", "Hug" (he puts his front paws on your shoulders)"Get your bone", "Get into your bed" & of course "Ride" Duke is super eager to please & is treat oriented, he just loves being with his humans.
