Basco is a wonderful pup that would make a great companion for almost any family. He is an avid snuggler when invited to do so, but may choose to lie at your feet with or without invitation. If left to his own devices he will gladly laze around all day, but loves to walk, play, run, and sniff when the opportunity presents itself. However, he should be limited from participating in too many high impact activities due to a possible herniated disk in his lower back. Outside of this activity limitation, he has no problems at all and went on to quickly become a favorite at his local doggie daycare center this summer.
Basco is afraid of thunderstorms. Having people or other pups around makes him feel fairly safe and comfortable (see the foot snuggling listed above) but it is something to be aware of. Additionally, he is not friendly towards cats and should not be homed with any cat lovers.
So far as training goes, he has some great tricks in his toolbox, from the basics (sit, down, stay, go to place, walking without pulling, wait at doors) to some other more fun ones (“Peek a boo,” “Find it”, high five, and can even take off your socks if asked!). He is a very eager learner!
