Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization

What a couch potato! My partner and I joke that our pair of dogs are polar opposites of each other, with the hyper Jack Russell on one side and our barely animate Dachshund on the other. This little guy likes nothing better than to curl up on the couch and sleep the day away--all the better if you're there to do it with him.
Both my dog and the other little docksides I've worked with have been headstrong and difficult to train. It's not impossible, but I have found myself seeing red a couple times when he deliberately disobeyed commands I knew he understood. I found the trick to be short training sessions that allowed him to be released from duty before I lost my temper!
