Amy just wants to be loved. She loves to be petted and scratched. She’ll rest her head on you to get affection and push her head under your hand to keep the affection going. She is happy cuddling on the sofa in the evening.
She will do well in a house as either the only dog (so she can have all the toys and love to herself) or with another dog that can show her proper dog play. She can get a bit rough and is still very much a puppy. With a proper introduction she gets along with big or small dogs. She is always kissing our foster-fail or bringing her toys to engage in play.
Amy is quickly learning house rules and how not to jump up and listens well when I ask her to get out of the kitchen when I’m cooking. She has learned “come”, “wait”(wait for the food/treat instead of taking it), “sit”, “lay down”, “shake a paw” and “leave it”. She also responds to the Marker “yes” during training.
Amy would have fun doing some agility work. We have been teaching her to jump over, jump onto, walk along, turn around, sit and lay down all on a 8 inch bench. She really loves it!
Amy is crate trained and sleeps quietly all night there. She also has learned to go to her crate while we eat as well, (no begging or circling the table) and will sometimes even go in without being asked. Amy is house trained but doesn’t make a lot of noise. We’ve taught her to ring a bell to let us know she needs out.
Amy needs to continue her work on leash walking. We have had a few training sessions but more training classes are a must and would help her walk nicely and not pull, lunge or react when other dogs or joggers go by. She is very smart and learns quickly. Her prey drive is high and she needs to learn self control to walk calmly.
Amy loves truck rides! She get excited as soon as the door opens and she jumps right in. She does need to be tethered for safety though to keep her in the back.
Amy is the sweetest puppy who will love you back 10-fold!
