Introducing our handsome Collins! Collins decided that work was not for him and he is on the search for his loving new home! He is a very smart boy and loves his food and treats, making training lots of fun. He is great with his sit and down and he is currently working on his spin! He thought a career in dance might be more up his ally. Collins has a very active mind and loves to be tested. Whether that’s through a puzzle toy or a frozen kong, Collins is always waiting to keep his mind busy!
Collins can sometimes become bossy when he doesn’t get his way. If he doesn’t want to go inside after some fun in the backyard, or he isn’t ready to finish his walk, he will definitely let you know. When he gets overstimulated he will jump and bark at you and if that doesn’t work he will try to mouth you. When Collins gets like this, he is just seeing how much he can get away with! It is not mean natured, he is just a big dog and doesn’t know his own strength. Collins loves his chew toys and frozen kongs, and these are great tools to use to keep his mind and body busy! He does not do well with soft toys, they are too fun for him to pull apart!
Collins’ perfect home would be one that has dog experience and isn’t afraid to set strict rules and boundaries. He would love to go to a home that has structure so he knows what to expect! He wouldn’t do well in a home with small animals or other dogs, he knows that he deserves all the attention from his family. As Collins can become overstimulated, he needs to go to a home that does not have any children. He would love to go to a home that is excited to continue his training! Collins is such a sweet and loving boy and loves to snuggle. He promises to steal your bed at night and keep you nice and warm. With his goofy personality, he is sure to keep you laughing until your cheeks hurt. Collins knows that he can be a good boy in the right home!
