Personality: Thunder is a party boy ready to find his BFF(s)! He is a very energetic boy who needs some assistance in learning some manners. Out of pure exuberance, Thunder can get jumpy and mouthy with humans but he is learning impulse control and good manners. Thunder is required to go home to an adult only home that has experience caring for energetic dogs from young age, teaching them that human body parts and clothes are off limits and is familiar with positive reinforcement training techniques to best re-direct mouthy behaviors.
Thunder is very food motivated and very eager to learn! He has come a long way since he first came to HSSV and his canine manners are improving every day. All he needs is a stable home with routine and continued training and support to become the best dog he can be.
Thunder's adoption includes a post-adoption training scholarship. The scholarship can be used for a private, one-on-one consultation with R+ trainer who can help to create a training plan for Thunder to help him learn.
History: Thunder came to us from a partner shelter in Central Valley with his litter mates.
Dog Skills: Thunder really likes dogs and he enjoys wrestling and playing chase with other playful, tolerant canines. He may benefit to go home with an adult, friendly dog that can teach him the ropes.
Leash Skills: Thunder enjoys going on long walks. He pulls on leash when he is excited and would benefit from walking on front-clip harness while learning loose leash walking.
