Good looks? Check! Good manners? Check! Good fetching skills? Check, check check!
Sleek bullet Bock has the focus and determination to fetch for hours. He loves to carry his ball around in his mouth, and sometimes if you're not fast enough with the next one, he'll ARWOOF around the ball! He's almost got the drop command mastered, so the fun never has to end.
Don't worry, Bock has a softer side too. As soon as you call him over, he's all wiggles and back scratches. He loves to snuggle after a full day of fetch, so get comfortable!
Bock loves learning too. He's happy to hang up his ball for a little bit while he's learning the finer points of obedience. He already knows sit and down and drop (most of the time). And his leash walking skills are on point! He does a little pulling here and there but because he loves treats so much, he's happy to trot alongside his person while being rewarded with treats for his awesome eye contact. Occasionally a squirrel or other little critter will run by, but a few quick moves and he's back to his attentive self.
Don't miss out on the gorgeous dog! Bock is all retriever and will reward long days of fetching with companionship.
