Timmy is such a love bug! His calm, sweet presence brings us such joy! He is going to make everyone that interacts with him so happy!
NSD Timmy has come along so well. His sweet personality and toddler-like playfulness are so endearing. He gets along well with our other dog and new kitten as well as the little ones who frequent our house. He even likes the chickens, who merely tolerate him. He does an amazing job when out in public, with such strong focus.
Timmy is a real softee. He is still as much a puppy as an almost full grown dog. He has his set play time and nap times and prefers to be tucked into his kennel by 9 p.m. He has had an exhausting day by then! He has adapted to the house schedule very well. His loose leash walking and focus when out in stores is amazing. He is unfazed by the people around and the many Christmas distractions. We are currently in the chewing to destroy faze, so lots of ‘leave its’ and set toys are the constant. Timmy has found he loves the snow, more specifically the ice chunks that can be found. He continues to love his wrestling with the kitten and vice versa!
Timmy is a big cuddly teddy bear. He loves to cuddle when he is tired. He is amazing when we are out in the community, knowing his ‘job’ and doing it well. He is still needing some work on dog distractions when out on walks. He loves to wrestle with our kitten and follow the chickens around the yard.
Timmy is a big softie. He loves to climb onto your lap, although he hasn’t figured out what to do with his legs and elbows when doing so! He has the sweetest demeanour and loves to wrestle with his big brother. We are continuing to work on his distractions when out walking. He just wants to greet everyone and every dog is a potential playmate to him. His new skill of backup is being worked on as well as his stair climbing. He is eager to learn and earn his rewards for a job well done.
Timmy has been accepted into NSD University as part of our 2023 Spring class!
