Being away from home this weekend definitely helped Hops potty better on leash. Other things he is improving on are waiting in the crate and Xpen to be released and I can now open the backdoor all the way with him still in a sit before releasing him to go out.
Before bed we played more tug and I remembered I have a chase it toy (a toy on a rope attached to a pole and handle) so not only was it fun for him to chase it around, but I could reel him and the toy back in to play tug with me each time he got the toy! A little later Hops started following me around and sitting, meaning he was hungry, so I had him do some pushups for some kibble. One more trip outside and we are all off to bed!
