Son of dog below. No further info
DAS Yard 29 – Male ACD Crossbreed, 1-2yrs – HELD OVER FROM LAST WEEK
Notes form the Pound:
In the cage – This boy was in the seized yards as he has been jumping the fence at home. He was calm in the cage but pulled his way out to the yard
In the stand and ignore – he was excited when first in the yard. He calmed down then stood close to the handler after giving himself a self correction on the end of the martingale collar
With withdrawal of affection – he leaned right into the pats then took off and pulled very hard on the lead almost pulling the handler over. He then calmed down and stood quietly
Was happy to be handled
Health – has gunky ears
In the guide and place – he resisted then allowed the sit and resisted the drop
In the stranger danger – he playbowed to the stranger then stormed forward pulling the handler to meet. Very friendly
In the kid test – he got very excited and boofed around the doll in a friendly manner. Perhaps best for older kids due to combo of size and boofiness
With dog to dog – he got excited and pulled hard to go and meet the other dog. He was quite intense but friendly and the other dog moved away. On the second meet he was intense again then tried to put his paw on the other dogs head and he moved away
With food bowl guarding – he pushed the bowl around with his nose for a while then picked it up and tipped all the food out. He then placed the bowl upside down over the food and covered it up. He was not concerned by the hand patting him while he was standing near his hidden treasure. Never seen that before!
With correction on the martingale collar – he is very strong and but was quite sensitive to correction. Will need a strong handler
This dog is motivated by treats – loves treats and has a very gentle mouth.
Training – he can sit
In the fence jumping pen – he jumped up around the fencing and banged himself against the panels. 6ft strong fencing would be recommended
Description: This big fella is a whole lotta goofball dog. He is incredibly strong and boofy so will need someone that is experienced with big dogs and can put some time into training him as he still acts very much like a huge puppy. He met nicely with the other dog but needs to learn to calm down a bit so the meetings aren’t so intense and rude. He will need daily activity and would be best in a home with older or no kids due to his size and inability to recognise his own size and strength. A big loveable man who needs the guidance and training he should have got as a pup.
