Personality: Comet is a fun, energetic, playful & goofy boy. He is very social and is wiggly when meeting new people. He likes the outdoors and enjoys going on long walks and runs. He would benefit from daily physical and mental exercise. He would do best in an adult household and low key environment that understands and is comfortable with herding breed behavior. He also loves going to the beach and playing in the sand. As energetic as he is, Comet also loves to curl up and relax with you. He is very intelligent and easy to train. He picks up commands quickly and is already good with the basics. Comet did well in his foster home with a routine potty schedule. He also did well getting left alone when provided exercises and had his bed and chew toys to keep him occupied. My care has been sponsored by Pallavi Akella! A training scholarship has been funded by The Pedigree Foundation
History: Comet came to us from the central valley.
Dog Skills/Cat Skills: Comet is a very excitable dog, that he can be to forward for more reserved and shy dogs who prefer space and time to warm up. Comet tends to be vocal and bossy in play with dogs, and will pick on less confident dogs. Comet does enjoy chase and physical contact play, but has shown to escalate corrections from other dogs. He may do best as an only dog, but has also shown to tolerate and play with females that are calm, social, polite, and playful, who can tolerate his very vocal, pushy play style. At this time comet has shown to only do well meeting other dogs on a loose leash walk, before being able to play. Comet has shown hyper focus on cats, and adopters should be aware of breed tendencies.
Leash Skills: Comet pulls while walking on a leash and would benefit from the use of a front clipping harness. He can be reactive when he sees dogs, and does best with low traffic walking routes and treat redirection.
