-work on his issue with the SFE and not moving to the judge!
-work on his issue with men in the ring and get him comfortable with a male judge
-work on his fronts - teach him to adjust to find perfect front, and then translate that to with the db in his mouth.
-be matching in utility at least once a month or every other month depending on show schedules
