My Personality & Needs

Personality.
Asia, is a very smart dog. She knows sit and has a good start to some other skills here at the shelter, including crate training which is helping her feel comfortable and safe in her kennel and getting a good start to house training also. She is very motivated by both praise and treats and eager to learn. Asia has tons of energy that combined with her ability to learn would make her an excellent candidate for dog sports like agility or fly ball. She would also make a good running or hiking partner for someone. Asia can be nervous with new people, and in new situations. We have worked hard to help her adjust and build her trust in people. Adopter should make sure her experiences and training are positive to build her confidence and increase her social skills.
Crate training is recommended for house training a dog or puppy as it is the most effective and efficient method- it also helps prevent destructive chewing, door darting, and gives a dog a place to retreat. Recommend a positive reinforcement training class to instill good dog manners, provide socialization, and build a strong dog/adopter bond. This dog has a voucher for discounted classes.
