Are you ready for me in your life?
My name is Dexter and I've heard them say I am a Labrador crossed with a Border Collie – whatever that means! I’m three and a half years old and I love life, given the chance.
I really enjoy meeting people and love to jump up to say Hello. I am very good at jumping, I jump so high I can look in their eyes. But…….I’ve been told that isn’t very good manners, so I'm learning to keep my feet on the ground – boy is that hard for me.
I’ve been working with a trainer and she is teaching me some fun games, like ‘Find it’ where I go and hunt for the treats in the grass. That keeps my feet on the floor, for sure. I'm learning to sit still too when people are around me - so many new social skills to get to grips with!
I also love to play with a ball but I do like to keep it once it’s in my mouth. The trainer is teaching me to swap the ball for a treat and then she throws the ball again for me. When she says ‘Enough’ I’m learning that means the end of the ball game. So much learning to do - but it is good fun.
So what kind of person would be right for me?
WLTM – A kind, patient person who understands energetic dogs. I really do need someone to teach me boundaries and build a bond with me.
Others have tried - but I've not found my perfect match yet.
So, I would love someone who would strive to build that special bond and be confident to enjoy an active lifestyle with me.
Oh and by the way - I think the charity might just fund some training with my new owner!
Could you be that person?
You can see the progress that can be made with dedication to positive training!
