Whitlee is incredibly energetic and playful. She is shy around new people, dogs, and experiences but because she's very curious, she gains confidence with positive reinforcement very quickly.
Whitlee loves to swim and loves water. She likes putting her nose to the ground and hunting for things so she would be fascinated with barnhunt or scentwork. She'd also excel at disc dog/Updog, dock diving, fast cat, and likely agility.
She really enjoys soft Frisbee and will play fetch with a ball. She will catch and play tug but also knows drop it and bite it so she knows when to pull and when to let go. She does well on a leash and knows the signal that means it's time to pay attention and come back to heel position (and get a treat!)
Whitlee was very reactive to cars, bicycles, joggers, and sprinklers and is now learning to focus on her person instead. But she will need someone who will continue her training to avoid the excitement of all that motion.
Whitlee is a very quick learner and has already mastered about 20 commands! She is incredibly smart so she needs a person as brilliant and eager as she is. She can't be left alone to just chill all day and do nothing. She'll need short but fun training sessions and she'll test her person often to make sure they are as smart as she is!
Whitlee is great with other dogs. She loves to play and she plays hard, so she'll need a tolerant dog who can handle her energy level and strong personality. Because of that energy, she needs a home with no young children, no small animals, and a fenced-in yard.
Ideally, Whitlee will find a structured, yet active home where she can get training and enrichment from someone with herding dog experience. If you're intrigued by this smart, energetic pup, please reach out.
