Mr. Snowflake


My Personality & Needs

Mr. Snowflake can be nervous about meeting new people and takes his time warming up. He does not like to be reached at or grabbed for (this is SCARY for him). If you let him come to you, get down low, go slow, he will warm up quickly. He is still learning how to walk on a leash and will stop on occasion during his walks. A treat pouch will be your best friend when teaching him how to walk on a lead as he is very food motivated and willing to please. He is an active, energetic puppy looking for someone with some reward based training experience to help him develop into a wonderful companion dog.

Recommended Households:
Mr. Snowflake requires adopters who have the skill and knowledge to help him develop confidence. No small children as he is nervous and jumpy. Needs a permanent solid living situation (not a lot of moving and transitions) to help him adjust well.
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.
