Hi there! I'm Milo and I want to be a Champion....or at least have lots of fun trying! Anyone interested in developing my skills further? I could do cani-x, fly-ball, disk-dog, agility, obedience or even working trials, are you up for the challenge with me? Milo is a young, energetic dog. He has lots of potential and needs a home that is committed to ongoing training. He displays typical collie behaviours, plus he's just going through the adolescent phase! He needs an active home as he is very athletic - he'd really enjoy getting involved in agility, disk-dog, cani-x, obedience, working trials...mind games and physical activity is what keeps him happy! Milo can be worried by some new people and this will require management and training long term, he will require an adult only home. He is generally social with other dogs however can be worried by some dogs and this will require on-going training, he may be able to live with a similar sized/ larger female however there would need to be consideration of matching characters. He is not suited to live with cats. New owners will need to continue to build up his confidence travelling in the car, he may also be worried by high traffic areas. He occasionally has accidents in the home, but is mostly house trained. Milo is worried by lots of activity and noise so consideration needs to be given to ensure his home environment and areas he is exercised will suit, his confidence is growing well already with training. Milo is a popular character with staff and volunteers however he does need an experienced home with knowledge of his breed type and time to devote to longer term management and training. Milo has enjoyed time in a foster home, he is currently back in kennels. Milo is reaching physical maturity and he is a wonderfully athletic, seriously smart young dog with lots of potential ready and waiting to develop skills further in the right home with the right person!
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your dog needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Dogs are very social and love spending time with people and sometimes other animals.
· Physical exercise - At least a couple walks a day.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / training.
· A healthy diet - Normally two feeds a day of the food type and quantity appropriate for the dog. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp, where they can rest.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around dogs to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each dog has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your dog please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
