My story

Sweetie Alpine (watch my video) was rescued from a distant shelter along with 3 other pups on 6/2/22. He is friendly cuddly active and playful. Alpine loved playing with the other pups at his foster home and in yard. He will need an experienced guardian and home with attached yard. More info to come from his foster home. He will grow up to be a large adult. He needs a home with attached yard for potty biz run/play and lounge for his happiness. Future great hiking buddy. Update: Alpine is doing great at his foster home. He is active loves playing with other dogs so would love a home with another playful dog or someone that can take him to dog socials daily or weekly. He is smart confident and learning basic commands. Loves playing fetch will get tired and just wants to cuddle or nap. Foster Home update & details: Food drive: Medium. Toy drive: Medium. SUPER cuddly dog. If you sit down he will want to be in your lap. While he's not a fearful dog by any means it can take a bit of adjusting to get him used to new settings understandably because he's just a pup! He's very responsive to positive reinforcement. A little positive tone in your voice and some high value treats and he will become very comfortable very quickly! He definitely seems like your average active pet. Here's my daily routine with Alpine in terms of play and training. Our mornings start at 5:30 AM. In the morning we do a 15-20 minute training session for his breakfast (I'm sure as you know owning a Belgian Malinois mix they LOVE working for things like food and toys). During this training session we do movement lures. Sit downs stand spin focused heel front middle etc. Super upbeat and fast paced training session. After this he will nap for 1-2 hours. Then I play individually with him for 30 minutes. After our individual play session he plays with the other 2 pups and my 75 lbs Belgian Malinois mix for 2.5 hours. After this he takes a 2-3 hour nap. Then we play a full mental game with food. Either he uses a puzzle toy or I scatter his food in the yard and he has to go skiff out the kibble. I then let the 3 pups and my adult dog out to play for 3 hours. After about 1.5-2 hours Alpine is happily laying in the shade and watching his brothers play for the remainder of the session. After this for his dinner we do some practical training skills that will be useful for when he is adopted. We practice his recall on leash walking and impulse control. His recall is 'here' and he finishes in a front position (chest on my legs basically). He still requires some luring for this! He's learning to respect the leash and not bite it. He knows that when he's on leash where I go he does and he understands light leash pressure. For impulse control we're working on a release command. With my adult dog I use 'free' to allow him to leave his crate leave the door leave the gate get food that may have been dropped and leave a stay/place command. That's what I'm working on with Alpine at the moment though he's just in the beginning stages of that training. I highly suggest continuing that training because it can prevent a lot of accidents (bolting out the door eating poisonous food that was dropped etc.).
