Meet Princess! Princess is an energetic, affectionate and happy girl. She loves to be outside, play in the snow and go on long walks. She enjoys camping and swimming in shallow water, playing fetch with her human and lounging on the couch after a busy day of activities. Her favorite treats include crunchy veggies like carrots, stuffed bones and ice cubes.
Princess’s ideal family is an active one that enjoys the great outdoors as much as she does. They will include her in family activities and have the time to invest in playing with her and training. They live in a home with a yard where she can lounge in the summer sun and play in the newly fallen snow. She can be vocal at noises and passerbys outside, and so an apartment would not be suitable for Princess.
Princess is very cuddly and affectionate with her family and loves new people too. Her family used to take her to the dog park where she would prefer to play with the humans! Although she loves to meet new people, Princess needs help with her manners. She will bark and jump up in an effort to get their attention and pats. She is very good with respectful children. Princess would prefer to be the only pet in the home.
She is medium energy and would do best with two 20-30 min walks per day. She walks best on a gentle leader which helps to minimize pulling, but overall, her new family should be willing to work on leash walking. Although she plays well with other dogs at doggy day care, she can be intimidated by larger dogs while out on walks. She will bark and pull towards smaller dogs. She is fearful of the manhole covers and rain drains (will avoid them), and will bark at skate boarders and motorcyclists.
Princess is house trained and knows sit, wait, lay, twirl, paw. She would benefit from a family willing to set rules and boundaries and use obedience training as a means to drain her energy as well. When her family is away, Princess can be trusted with free reign of the house. As a puppy, Princess was crated during the night and she does well in her crate. She likes if her crate is covered with a blanket so it is like a little cave. She now sleeps at the foot of the bed or on the floor of the bedroom now.
