Martin's super intelligent

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 6 December 2012 | 4 Comments


My partner and I adopted Martin in June this year and I want to give you an update on him.


We have completed an 8 week training course with him and it was fantastic. He loved it and it was a facinating experience for us.

I have continued with the training and we do about an hour every day. I can get him to come to me from anywhere in the dog park now with just a hand signal. (80% of the time- getting better and better.)

We have bought a house in Ellenbrook pretty much because it has an amazing fenced dog park. The house has a brilliant back yard which is fully fenced and has a water feature which on hot days Martin goes in for a swim on and off all day.

He is the most calm and super relaxed dog. He is perfect. Super intelligent too, we tell him something once and he's got it. All his meals are frozen kongs and every treat he gets he does tricks for. We try really hard to keep him stimulated and thinking.


We love him so much and feel extremely lucky to have him. He is perfect.

Regards, Nick

  • Martin has hit the jackpot with you two and I love the photo with him in the water feature. He is lucky to have found someone with so much awareness for him.
