Rescued 2 yr outdated lab – assist, please!


First time ever posting though I incessantly comply with posts. I’m a lifelong animal lover and rescuer. I’ve had Labradors my whole life. I simply want some encouragement as I sit right here in tears, penning this.

We rescued a 2 yr outdated Labrador (male, neutered) lower than every week in the past. We’re his seventh and FINAL residence. We’re one million % dedicated to this stunning soul.
He’s had some coaching and is aware of a couple of instructions. (We don’t know his full historical past, however unsure if he’s ever “lived” in a house earlier than us.) He stays tethered to me on a slip leash as he learns that sure issues are off-limits (counter browsing, and so on.) I’m EXTREMELY constant in expectations, instructions, comply with/by way of, and so on. He is getting train and psychological enrichment toys. And, he got here to us from the rescue on meds, which positively helps. We’re working with a licensed, superb coach, too. We’re engaged on crate coaching.

He’s a lover and cuddle bug. And, unbelievably SMART. Im simply unbelievably overwhelmed. I don’t know easy methods to clarify it precisely…it seems like I’m “on” 24/7. I believe he’s bonding with me – needs to sleep close to me, contact me along with his paw, and so on., after I’m sitting down.

I’ve simply by no means doubted my coaching or skills like I’m now. Admittedly, I’m sleep disadvantaged. It looks as if we make progress, then take 10 steps again. I really feel as if he challenges me a lot bodily and mentally as a result of he’s soooooo sensible. (My different labs have been/are sensible, however this man is one thing else and I imply that in a really type, loving means.)

Please simply inform me this will get simpler!!! Thanks.
