Meet the handsome little dude Geoff, who has come into us from a private home. The reason for the rehome isn't for the lack of trying on the owners part but it seems Geoff had a behavioural problem which is centred around his owners within the home environment which doesn't present itself anywhere else nor with any other person and the problem is incessant barking at his owners.

Geoff's owners had sought help with two different behaviourists to see if they can combat the problem however due to the owners personal circumstances the only way to rectify the situation was taking Geoff out of it and rehome him elsewhere. Geoff has stayed with other family members and indeed in boarding kennels and has never exhibited the problem the owners have.

Since arriving we haven't actually heard Geoff bark at all, he is a friendly, happy boy who loves everyone, super biddable and a joy to have around!

We know that Geoff is good with other dogs having stayed with family members dogs and attended doggy daycare, so he could live with a dog in his new home provided temperaments suit.

Geoff travels well but can get a little car sick on longer journeys, he is housetrained, he walks well on the lead and absolutely loves fuss.

He is a very clever boy and has attended several training classes including scentwork which he loved, so it would be great if we could find him a home where he can put his brain (and nose!) to good use either to continue such classes or even try his paw at a new sport such as agility. He is very food motivated, has a full repertoire of commands and is always keen to please his handler.

We will be looking for an active home for this boy, he isn't a couch potato and certainly not a companion lap dog but one who wants to explore and go on loads of adventures, he is a fit little pup who really needs as much mental stimulation as physical stimulation - so long walkies are a must.

Geoff does have some seasonal allergies which causes him to be a bit itchy but this is controlled by medication as and when needed, usually around spring/autumn.

As Geoff hasn't been around children only having briefly met them in passing we are looking for a home with older or no children.

We are happy to discuss Geoff's previous behaviour with anyone interested in rehoming him, we have his behaviourist reports and have our own behaviourist for ongoing support.

We hope with the right home, enough exercise, plenty of work for his brain and an experienced owner Geoff will thrive in a new home!!
