  • Great house manners

I am an adorable, one-year-old Golden Doodle boy…playful, attentive, and housetrained. I am good at the groomer, like to swim, don’t resource guard, am crate-trained, and know some commands. So, what brings me here? I have this thing called leash reactivity. While I have lived happily with other dogs I know, and walk well when I’m out alone, I get a little over-the-top nutty when I see another dog while on leash. I’m not proud of it. It’s not becoming of a cute little dog like me – and I know it’s embarrassing for the people on the other end of the leash. But the dog folks here say it’s also something that be trained out if you are willing to work on it with me. It will take some time and the help of a trainer (Homeward Bound can recommend one!), but I’m young and still impressionable, and if it’s the only thing that keeps me from earning the “perfect dog” label, I’m going to give it my all. I may like another dog friend (I’m a Doodle = choosy!), but I tend to chase cats. I’ve never hurt one, but they don’t like it! Sturdy kids, on the other hand, don’t mind at all…so they are OK for me! So, if you don’t mind one small flaw in an otherwise awesome dog…come meet me and help me grow into the “perfect” label I aspire to!
