Crunchie

DOB - JUL 2013  | Male | Kelpie

Crunchie is a high drive dog, who is smart and eager to work. Crunchie likes human interactions although if you force him to do something (grabbing collar) or he feels uncomfortable he may bite. Allow Crunchie to come to you and initiate interaction and he is fine. Crunchie loves to toy play with you, he growls but it is part of his play style. When excited or comfortable with you Crunchie can jump up in your face when at his level. Crunchie is a little wary of having things put over his head or around his neck, patience and a calm hand is needed and again don't force it or he will react.

MY IDEAL HOME: I need to go to owners who have experience with the kelpie breed. Ideally owners will be fit and lead an active life style or live on a large property.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I would love to go for 2x 1 hour or more lead walks daily until a reliable recall is taught. It would be good if owners involve me in agility or herding classes.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with dog savvy kids over 10 years.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

MY IDEAL HOME: I am an intelligent girl looking for a family willing to engage my mind.  Group obedience training is a must for me, to help me bond with my new owners as well as learn good doggy manners.
