Your dog has had some training. He understands the basic commands, but may not always listen to them, especially around distractions, or without treats. He generally works well for treats or play rewards. He has some impulse control and doesn't normally get into trouble around the house, although he may still need some extra management at times and still struggles a bit with manners in exciting situations.
You'd like to improve your dog's manners and self control and work on his reliability with commands. A great goal for you is to work towards earning your dogs AKC CGC Certificate.
