Meet Gibson "Good Boy!"

Gibbs is a big bouncy boy weighing 110 lbs. He doesn't pull & we are thankful for that! He is mostly non-reactive with other dogs.

BACKGROUND: Gibson came to the rescue from a shelter where he was turned in because his owners were moving out of the country.

PERSONALITY: Gibbs is your typical adolescent male malamute who enjoys his freedom. He protests a little when you put a leash on him, but just make it positive and tell him he is a good boy, toss a treat, and he is ready for a walk. He loves hikes and stopping to smell all kinds of interesting stuff. Gibbs has been friendly with most female dogs but no males or small pets for this big guy. He does well walking with some other male dogs on opposite sides of the street.

LIKES: He enjoys running around in the play yard and loves catching treats tossed in the air. He also likes playing the "find it" game. He knows "sit" and "down" cues. He is super smart and when he feels stressed he goes to the down position to help achieve a state of Zen. Gibbs thrives with force-free training, which gives him a choice and builds trust.

Gibson enjoys chasing cars while in my play yard, so we offer him a choice. He can go chase the car or go to the human, sit and earn treats? That's easy, TREATS! Now he looks to his foster mom & sits waiting for treats when he hears a car coming. This creates a positive association with cars. He enjoys earning treats & praise for making good choices. He loves dunking his head in his water bowl, too.

HEALTH: Gibb's is sturdy & nicely proportioned. He has a healthy appetite too.
