Meet Rosey (20230316-01)
Foster Comments: Rosey is a very smart dog who is EXTREMELY food motivated. This makes learning tricks very
easy! She has learned: sit, stay, lay down, spin, shake, pray. Also if you drop food on the floor,
she will wait and give you eye contact and wait for you to say ‘okay’ before eating it. Her
favourite foods: bananas, cheese, blueberries, ANY DOG TREATS, frozen strawberries, frozen
peas, peanut butter. She loves having treats or PB put in her Kong and then frozen. It also
keeps her quiet for 15 mins!!
Rosey loves to be outside playing a good game of fetch, tug of war, popping bubbles or just to run in an enclosed space. She enjoys have a job to do (such as fetch) and gets enjoyment out of completing her job. Her recall is getting better, but isn't consistent yet.
Being a puppy, she still needs to be told when to rest, so we use the crate for nap times and she is in her crate every night for bedtime.
Rosey can be a nervous dog and would do best in a quieter household with no young children. She doesn't like loud noises or sudden movements, or strange sounds (like crying) however is fine with fireworks and thunderstorms. When she gets scared, she can jump or bark and sometimes when she gets excited she can nip. She would benefit from an adopter who can continue her training and responds best to calm consistent training with gestures rather than words.
