Meet Emmett

Hi, I'm Emmett!

Currently, I am fostered in the country. I feel more at ease with less stimulation, and I LOVE going on long walks where I can explore (always supervised!). I also love basking in the sun.

Initially, I am a little unsure and on guard when exposed to new people and places, and with patience I learn things aren't so scary. I enjoy taking walks and do very well with my leash skills - I even do well jogging! I do better with a male/guy owner as being babied and coddled does not help my lack of confidence (even though I'm very smart!).

I LOVE to play tug-of-war and am very strong. With guidance I have been learning how to play more appropriately, as sometimes I don't know my own strength. I am also a great chewer - I have not met a 'stuffy' I cannot destroy, and I love the challenge. But don't worry, as long as I have chew toys, I will leave your non-chew things alone.

I travel well in the car, I am potty trained, and sleep well in my kennel, even though I would LOVE to cuddle and sleep in the human bed, I do require boundaries just like any other household member to keep me being my best self. I kennel well, especially when this is a part of my consistent routine. I don't like to be alone, but do not need constant attention, I just like to be in the same room as you. I can get a little noisy at times, so an apartment is probably not a great place for me.

I completed basic obedience class and was a star student! I am VERY food motivated and am handler focused. I know my basic commands and listen well, especially when actively training. At home, I listen incredibly well.

I currently live with other dogs and have lived with cats prior. I need to know my boundaries with cats. With dogs in the same home we need to have our own spaces apart, especially when it’s time for food or chews. I’m not a fan of sharing inside with other dogs and would do best as the only dog. I do, however, love playing with other dogs outside or away from home. I have been attending doggy daycare and have made some friends.

I am a GREAT guy who forms a tight bond to my person. If you are willing to be consistent with my training I am SURE TO PLEASE!

I love to play with select dog friends, but I need to be the only pet in the home.
