(This will make you cry.) So Keegan's been waking me up at 4:00 in the morning needing to go potty, so I've started taking his water bowl away at night. On a related note, we've also been making a lot of recent progress on retrieve. Tonight, I emptied the water bowl and put it up on the counter, then went to the other end of the house. A few minutes later, Keegan comes proudly trotting up to me and politely handed me the water bowl, then stepped back and waited hopefully. He was so nice about it all, it was all I could do to not fill it up for him. I gave him an ice cube instead, but he's moping anyway.
