Pretty Gee is looking for an experienced owner as she needs a lot of consistent training in some areas. She is clever but quickly frustrated, along with a lot of energy, so you need to have time to give her training as well as mental and physical stimulation.

Out and about Gee is not great at walking on the lead. She can get over-excited to say hello to people, lunge towards things that interest her, grab the lead or lie down and refuse to move. Her new owners will need to have the patience to work with her so you can both enjoy these times out! Our behaviour team will advise on training that we have started here in the Home. 

Off-lead she can get quickly over-excited in play which upsets some other dogs. We recommend that she is walked in areas relatively dog-free, and restrict dog meetings so they are controlled and short. She has been muzzle-trained now which will help with her ongoing socialisation.

In the kennels you wouldn't expect any of this, and it gives a good insight into how lovely she is at home! She is an affectionate girl, who settles in a calm house with plenty of company. When she wants you she will lick your face to let you know! She is happy to keep herself entertained too with her toys. At the Home she really loves being outside in the paddock, high up on one of our climbing platforms.

Gee loves food so should improve with plenty of short training sessions and a consistent routine. She really is lovely underneath the buzz of energy, and would make a wonderful companion. She can live with older teens and adults.
