Mally is a bundle of fun and energy and an all-round lovely dog! She adores people and other dogs, and her favourite activities are going on walks and playing. She’s incredibly smart and learns quickly, so would potentially make a great sports dog (e.g. agility or flyball). She has also had a go at canicross (see video below) and absolutely loved it, so would make a fab running buddy! She has a high prey drive and is very interested in squirrels, but comes away easily. All in all, she would make a wonderful companion for an active family.
Mally is looking for an active home with owners who will not only be able to meet her physical exercise needs, but will also commit to giving her the mental enrichment she needs through training or other activities like scentwork. She has a high prey drive, so cannot live with any cats or small furries. Mally can become a little bit obsessed with toys, so this will need some work – at the kennels we have been working on impulse control and listening skills around toys, as well as switching off when playtime is over. She sometimes pulls on the lead, but she is a smart girl so this should be easily resolved with kind, consistent training. Other than these very minor issues she really is a wonderful dog!
