PUPDATE: One of PHS's wonderful volunteers has been spending lots of time with Mowgli and they've been working on lots of commands. Here's what she has to say about this great pup!

Mowgli is a young dog who responds well to consistent, positive training. He is food motivated and very pleased to follow cues for “sit,” “down,” and “stay.” Mowgli is a shy dog, especially with men, and lacks confidence - he is not a dog who will run to you looking for affection when he first meets you. While he does need someone who will take the time to earn his trust, his friendliness and intelligence shine through during training sessions – for example, as soon as he picked up the hand signal for “down” (pointing to the ground) he also picked up the verbal cue “down” and responds to the verbal clue alone reliably and with enthusiasm.

Mowgli has lots of energy and will do well with a fenced in yard. Initially the only “play” he did was zoomies, but he is learning to play fetch. He will retrieve tennis balls, larger balls with throwing handles, and Kongball frisbees. Part of the game for Mowgli is to drop the ball or frisbee as he runs and then chase it down. He reliably delivers the toy in the end though, and it is fun to watch his antics.

Leash behavior and the cue “come” are still works in progress. On leash, Mowgli is not a constant puller, but he is a large dog and at this point it could be best to use a front clip harness for better control. The visual cue for “come” that Mowgli knows is the right arm extended out and then, elbow bent, the hand brought to the chest. When he’s given the cue “come,” you can see it on his face that he’s making up his mind about it – for now it’s probably best to give the cue when you’re pretty sure he’s going to follow through.

The person who loves dogs, has a fenced yard, and either has some understanding of dog training or is willing to learn will find in Mowgli an intelligent, spirited companion with a great sense of humor.
