- Good with Dogs
Chester is a very bouncy year old male lab. He loves everything and everyone. He loves to be busy, and would suit an active adult home as he has lots of energy.
He is strong but is learning to walk on a loose lead, currently with halti and harness. Excellent off lead recall.
He enjoys playing ball but hasn’t learnt to drop the ball yet so two balls are needed. He knows sit and wait and is learning down.
He would benefit from ongoing training and attending classes.
He is very sociable with other dogs, but can like them a little too much. We hope this should improve when he is castrated. He is learning slowly that not all dogs will tolerate a bouncy lab in their face.
He is foody so makes reward based training a lot easier.
Chester is learning to sleep on his own, he cries for 5 – 10mins, but is getting used to a Kong means bed time. He needs plenty of stimulation through the day to be calm enough for bed time. He is currently having 2-3hours exercise a day.
He needs to have his food in a slow feeding bowl and he eats so fast.
He would do well in an agility, obedience or very active home.
He is such a loving dog he really deserves a loving home.
