Overview

Super dog friendly Dobby, a smart, incredibly willing, sweet young boy. Dobby has his basic training sorted, that was a bit too easy for this mental giant of the dog world! He is looking for someone who can really challenge him with far more complex tasks. Basically this is a dog who NEEDS a job! Once he has that job, he will put everything he has into it. He will be your devoted worker, always wanting to know "what's next Boss?" Currently his routine is as follows: he goes for a morning run for a number of kms accompanying his owner whilst cycling, then returns home where he is provided with enrichment activities whilst his owner works from home. Although this would be enough for many a dog, it is not enough for Dobby. He is only just warming up for the day. Where's the challenge? Is what he is regularly asking. We know if he had access to a large space where he could play with another dog or dogs, he would be a very happy and fulfilled young guy. He is very dog friendly but not in a forceful or overbearing way, in fact he is a little timid at first but once he knows everyone is friendly, he is keen to join the games. At just 10 months of age, he is infinitely trainable. He could turn his paw to stock work, competition dog sports such as scent work, tracking, agility or obedience. He loves to be with his people, he is friendly with humans, other dogs and has even been successfully tested with chickens! He is house trained and is accustomed to a crate to relax in, although his owner has not been in the habit of closing him in, so that would be something new for him, but this clever guy won't have any trouble learning anything you want to teach him.
