Zachary – Labrador/Boston terrier/Collie Cross – 2 years old.
Update – Today we’ve been playing frisbee with Zak. He’s really enjoyed it and sometimes he caught it in mid air. Zak also likes a nice toy to chew and he will lay with it quietly chewing away, amusing himself.
Original Write Up – Zachary has come to us because he was a stray and no one has come forward for him. So we have started getting to know Zachary from scratch.
Zachary is turning out to be a smashing lad who loves everyone he meets. Zachary loves his toys and he is a fantastic retriever. Zachary will bring the balls back and he will drop very near to your feet and be ready for the next throw. Zachary also loves to run around within ball or toy in his mouth. Zachary will sit for you and he will even wait if you ask him to. We found this out whilst asking him to wait while we took pictures. He won’t wait for ever but he can do a good 10 seconds or so. Zachary will need a little more training because he can jump up a bit and he has jumped up on our desk, however he does recognise the “Down” command and we use a hand signal and he’s doing very well. He’s a clever boy and he’s learning fast.
We have no dog history with Zachary so we have started introducing him to our dog friendly dogs. He’s doing well so far and sometimes he doesn’t appear interested. Sometimes he can run up to another dog very fast and this can be a little un nerving for some dogs. So initially he will need to be kept on his lead until his recall is very good. He’s a clever boy and toy and treat motivated so that shouldn’t be a problem.
Zachary is very young so we wouldn’t want him left for too long. About 2 hours max and not on a regular basis. If there are children in the home they will need to be older and dog savvy. Zachary will need a garden with 5/6 foot security. We re home in a 50 mile drive of Bourne Lincs. Appointment only.
