What did the Dalmatian say after he’d finished his dinner? That hit the spot!

Where should a dog never go shopping? A flea market!

Ok ok, enough with the jokes. I’d better tell you all about me hadn’t I.

I’m a very smart young man and I have learnt so many useful things already including sit, down, paw, spin and leave. I used to pull very strongly on the lead but I have recently been learning how to walk with a loose lead and I am already much better on the lead.

When I meet new people I’m not very confident and I will hide behind my friends initially. I do love a snack though so gentle encouragement along with treats usually draws me over and within a few minutes you will get to see my playful side. I adore playing with toys, especially if you are involved in the game too. I’ll bring my toys over and put them into your lap when I want to play. I like to play tug and I also enjoy fetch.

Once I am settled in my surroundings you will see my more eccentric side. I can be very busy and I like to find things to keep myself entertained and occupied, but unfortunately these aren’t always the correct things. I will need plenty of enrichment available to me which will help me make the right choices. I do not cope well with being reprimanded as this can often cause me frustration as I don’t understand why I’m being told off. I am much better suited to a distraction approach and management of my environment. I’m a typical adolescent dog who needs a gentle approach and a good routine. I am easily over whelmed so it’s vital that once I’m adopted we take things nice and slow, too much too soon definitely won’t help me.

I’m looking to find a home where it is calm and quiet so I don’t get too over whelmed. Potential adopters will need to have owned nervous dogs before and have dealt with separation related disorders as I don’t feel comfortable when I’m left on my own in the house. I can only be left if you have a suitable heated kennel in the garden. You will also need to be ready to take on a high energy, cheeky and excitable dog who needs structure and routine. I will require 2 or more hours of exercise daily and when I’m settled in a new home I would really love to go to agility classes.
