Hi, I'm Bandit! I was returned to the shelter when my family could unfortunately no longer care for me. They loved me very much and here's a little of what they had to say about me.Bandit, aka Pico Bandito, Bandi-pants, and Band camp. He's highly food motivated. Some of his favorite treats while training him on walks are apples, cucumber, popcorn and bacon- flavored treats. These treats are used to help with his reactivity. He's leash reactive to bicycles, pedestrians, other dogs and people pushing strollers. When he meets people/other dogs off-leash, he jumps up but is happy/excited. He had two dog friends he had fun playing with off leash in their fenced-in yards. He still needs extensive work on his reactivity to passing cars. Bandit is very nervous around kids and would probably do best in a home with kids 12+. He's crate trained and sleeps in his crate at night. I put a little peanut butter on his red bone chew toy every night. He's easy to bathe at home in the shower. He's very smart and loves to learn. He can sit, stay, roll over, go to your crate, leave it, drop it and let's go. We have been working on him sitting at the door and staying in the car until I say "let's go". Bandit is nervous but good in the car. We crated him in the car on a longer trip and he did great. He despises the vacuum and the mail person. He didn't mind fireworks at all surprisingly. He loves to play, play, play. He's not a couch potato. He wants to fetch, tug and sniff out hidden treats in the yard and house. Bandit is so busy sniffing on walks that he doesn't listen to his body. It's not uncommon to take an hour long walk, only to have him come in the house and poop. He also likes to grab snacks that he finds on the side of the road or the side walk. He will let you remove objects from his mouth without biting you and is almost always gentle when taking treats from your hand. Bandit is a really wonderful, energetic, entertaining and funny dog. So smart and so handsome. Tummy, butt scratches, naps in the sun, playing with dogs that can match his level of enthusiasm,and peanut butter are all of his favorite things.
