Update: April 7: Well, here I am again coming through the revolving door. The person who adopted me and returned me for leash aggression decided to give it another try with some obedience training to help. It's a long process and my reactivity on leash sometimes caused the two other dogs to start reacting. What is the answer? Continued training and daily work. I am an amazing dog but all these disruptions do nothing to help. Although I get along splendidly with the dogs in my play group I would do better as your one and only. If you feel that you have what it takes to commit to me for the next 10 years or so, fill in the Application Form.
Meiko here and if I look like a familiar face, it’s because I am. You see I was adopted in early January and returned. The reason is I have leash reactivity – there I’ve said it. That’s the hard part isn’t it.
Because I was living with two other dogs, walks became too much for my human. I absolutely love lunging and barking at other dogs on a walk. It’s kind of like a doggie meltdown; but I know that this crazy behaviour needs to stop. The solution to all the barking, bucking, and bravado is obedience training. I’m ready for all the reward-based training that you are ready to give me! Yup, sign us up! We need to correct this problem in order to make our walks enjoyable. Off leash, I have no problem with dogs -- some of my best friends are canines. Cats, on the other hand, are better left off the menu. I do have a high prey drive so I will chase small animals.
Hanging out with the Volunteers again is fun, but I do miss having my very own family. I have all the qualities of a topnotch companion, you merely have to provide plenty of guidance, exercise, love, and perseverance. I sound unbelievable so far, don’t I?
And when we aren’t out and about together, a fenced yard would keep me safe. Treat me right, give me the training I require, provide me with the affection I long for, and I will be the best dog ever. So, do you see a future together? If you’re looking for a fantastic addition to your family, fill in the Application Form.
