CAN BE AN ONLY DOG OR IVE WITH ANOTHER HIGH ENERGY ACTIVE DOG
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
NOT CAT OR SMALL FURRY TESTED
NEEDS AN ACTIVE HOME WILLING TO PUT IN THE TIME AND EFFORT TO HELP HER BECOME THE DOG SHE WAS ALWAYS MEAN TO BE.
Coco is an 8 Month old cocker spaniel cross described by her foster mum as a delightful, energetic, inquisitive pup. She enjoys zooming around the garden with the resident dog and loves to play with her toys. She can be likened to the Duracell Bunny as she gets very excited greeting her foster Mum and when getting ready to go out for a walk. She is an absolute bundle of fun and brings a smile to your face as she is so endearing.
She knows basic commands such as sit and stay which need to be reinforced in a positive manner. Out and about she responds to her name and using a long lead she will come when called and sit for a treat. Coco would benefit from puppy training classes as she loves the stimulation and needs to have her brain kept active.
She enjoys being brushed and made a fuss of. She loves everyone that comes to the home but is still learning how to greet people nicely. With her long legs she can jump quite high so this needs to be discouraged.
She is not cat or small furry tested
She can be homed with dog savvy children as due to a lack of previous training and shark puppy teeth it would be unwise for her to be placed in a home with young children.
Coco is toilet trained and will sit at the door if she needs to go out. She has been left for short periods and is crated which she dislikes but it’s for her own safety and to give the resident dog a break as he sometimes finds her ott! She has a large assortment of toys which she loves to play with but gets quite anxious when foster Mum leaves the room or goes out which is being worked on.
She isn’t particularly food orientated but enjoys treats and responds well to praise. She currently sleeps upstairs with her foster Mum but in her own bed.
Coco loves to go for a walk and is very inquisitive about the outside world. She is quite nervous of sudden noises and hesitant meeting new people and other dogs but everyone that meets her remarks how stunning she is and consequently she is learning to be gently stroked. After her initial enthusiasm Coco walks quite nicely on a lead and harness. She has only travelled to the vets in the car and used a car harness successfully. At present she is being walked twice daily – once with resident dog and once on her own to help her build confidence.
Coco could be an only dog in an active home with people prepared to put in time and consistency with her training or live with another active dog. Due to her energy, acrobatic skills and her tendency to puppy nip she is best placed in a home with older children. She has only been left for short periods.
