This Canine-Good-Citizen-in-Training came to us from an animal shelter. His name is Matt and he wants so much to be a good boy and please his people. Can you help show him the way?
Matt is a happy-go-lucky 18 month old who loves people and other dogs. He’s a real social butterfly although his nickname is Speedy—because that’s the way he moves around the yard—like a speeding bullet! His favorite games involve chasing balls or a Frisbee. He’ll also give cats a run for their tuna, but he’s only playing—his intent is not to harm his kitty friends.
Yes, Matt has lots of puppy energy to burn off, which is why we have a few requirements for his new home. First of all, he must have a fenced yard so he can enjoy running safely and freely. Second, he must be accompanied to obedience training classes. We think it’s so important for dogs to learn in an environment where there are plenty of other people, dogs and distractions so he’ll learn listen to you despite his environment. Since Matt is naturally curious and loves to please his humans, we’re sure he’ll be an A+ student!
