He has had professional training with a great foundation in obedience. He loves to play with other dogs, but plays like a bull in a china shop so his playmates should be chosen wisely.
What he loves more than anything is being part of the family. Max is clever and will find his way out of crates and kennels if he thinks he missing out on family time so a home where he would need to be confined or isolated is probably not ideal for him. But if you want a dog who is a member of the family, a companion to go with you on hikes as well as cuddle up for movie night, then Max is your boy. Cats are a no for Max, and small dogs or very young children would probably be too small for his play style.
