My Personality & Needs

Personality
Please see notes from training program at IMCC.
This puppy is crate trained- will sleep and nap quietly in a crate, adopters should continue the positive association with crate training. This puppy is partially potty trained- will potty outside with positive reinforcement and will use potty pads inside with positive reinforcement. BUT she is still a puppy and physically cannot hold it for longer than a few hours.
Puppy knows sit, down, come, how to walk on a leash, and will touch or target your open palm with her nose called "touch" which we teach to puppies to help them gain confidence and greet people gently.

Recommended Households:
Puppies require a huge time commitment in house training, socialization, and handling so they grow up to be good adult dogs. Adopter should have a solid routine, somewhat permanent living situation,and financial resources for everything a puppy needs.
Crate training is recommended for house training a dog or puppy as it is the most efficient and effective 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.
