Irwin is a tall slim guy with a beautiful shiny coat, he looks like the Black Stallion of Pitbulls. This is a young man who is strong and powerful. He will greatly benefit by using a special harness to curb his pulling along with positive reinforcement for being in proper position. Irwin is a gentleman in the kennels and he holds the position of being in the most difficult kennel....the first one. This is the kennel that gets walked by the most, overlooked the most, and can be the most frustrating for a dog because they watch other dogs and people go by day in and day out. While Irwin shows us his good manners there, he does display his frustration when it comes time to get him out. Irwin responds well to constructive criticism, and after a few repeats of him not winning the leash tug game, he gives up and realizes that the leash is his ticket out of the cage. Irwin would benefit greatly from an active owner who will exercise him and participate with him in active games. Irwin is good with his sit and stay commands and really does want to please.
