Description

Style is a friendly girl with lots of energy. She loves to play and is good with some dogs, however she can be a bit full on for some dogs and her working stock nature takes over and she can nip dogs with frustrated. She finds walking on lead quite overwhelming when she hears other dogs barking and can become frustrated very easily. Continue focus training is helping manage this but as she is prone to stress easily she is looking for a home away from busy areas. We are told she doesn't bother with cats and rabbits. Style has good recall and knows basic commands. She loves attention and is very affectionate. Style will need a refresher is in housetraining and a home without children.

History

Style was handed in for rehoming as the landlord would not allow dogs at the property.

Re-homing Criteria

Style needs a rural home away from noise and busy areas. She requires an owner who has experience with working stock collies and can commit to her training. She is prone to frustration and responds by barking and lunging on lead when she feels overwhelmed. In order to help keep her calm we are teaching her an alternative behaviour by asking her to sit and focus on us, and rewarding. Style is coming on with her reward based training but she will need an owner who can continue this and understands it will take time to manage her behaviour.
