Miss Consuela is a petite yet sturdy young lady. She is the sweetest, most gentle pup and would make an amazing first dog. Her tail is always a blur because it never stops moving!
Her potty skills have been great so far and the snow does not phase her at all! She treats everything in the house like it's a beautiful treasure to discover for the first time. She reminds us of the little mermaid getting her legs! She loves to crawl into your lap and give you a big kiss on the face, but she's just as content to snooze in her exercise pen. She especially loves squeaky toys.
Working on demand barking - she will give sharp barks for food you are eating, or if she wants something
Minor resource guarding issues, and responds well to having own space and training
Might be a poo eater
Gives gentle kisses/nibbles to redirect attention she doesn’t want from other pets
Not huge on tummy rubs
Working on “sit” command
Has learned “off", and “leave it"
Leash skills are good, and she takes gentle correction well. (i.e., sensitive to stopping or changing directions)
Learning to settle with/near her people
Doesn't react or join in when my resident dog barks
When uncomfortable (such as a new situation) she will whine but very quickly adapt
Waits for redirection (new command/ instruction) after being told no to something.
Biddable and very trainable, loves her food and will eat kibbles out of a treat puzzle with gusto
Plays perfect fetch and will give, wait and release when told
Loves reflections of herself and others mirrors/windows, but spooks her at night
Might be a digger (giving her a sandbox and redirecting to appropriate digging recommended)
Eats tassels on pillows and rugs (remove!)
