Loki Akita DofB 02.11.16 Guildford Kennels

Serious discussions are already underway with families on these dogs or the dogs have gone into a home on trial when circumstances have elements that need to be overcome/worked on before homing is confirmed.

Loki was calmer today, he enjoyed the river without going loopy afterwards. He went in as far as he could every time though he’s not stupid and never jumps in if he can’t see the bottom. We had a nice relaxed amble.

Loki was on great form today. We headed off to the river where we bumped into a family with a loose spaniel on a narrow boat. The spaniel ran up to him and he was so gentle and well behaved and didn’t react at all. He also said hello nicely to a teenager and allowed himself to be patted. I could see a much bigger loose dog coming up behind us so we trotted off but I thought he did very well and he was rewarded by leaping into the river as deep as he could go without taking me with him.

It was lovely to see the handsome bouncy ball that is Loki today. We had a great walk with Marlee - Loki loves having a pal around. Here’s Loki loving his cheese:

Another nice calm walk with the peach floof. It was very hot but he was his enthusiastic self and couldn’t wait to cool down in the water. He was perfectly behaved. We didn’t see many dogs but he did make friends with an on lead labradoodle and was a total gent.

Loki was full of beans today despite the heat and after his first paddle, tried to dash round in circles like a mad thing, but he soon calmed down and listened. I find the best thing with him when he gets bouncy is to just walk on and he soon focuses on his walk again. It was so hot I had a little paddle myself so he could go in a little deeper. He had a nice brush when we got home.

I immediately fell in love with Loki, his gorgeous brown eyes and bear-like coat, and was thrilled when I walked him to find that his character was just as attractive. He is very friendly, loves his treats and walks well on the lead with the odd energetic puppy-like bouncing around when something excites him, but as Fran says he stops quickly if you calmly walk on.

We met a black labrador on a lead last week and Loki was very well behaved, greeting him politely while I talked with his owners. Today, we walked past a group of people standing around, including some children, and he seemed curious as to why they were all there, but walked right by them without any reaction.

It breaks my heart that such a young dog has been in kennels since December. All I can think is that it's because he is a big dog (akin to the size of a german shepherd), because he really is so responsive and friendly (to RR walkers, passers by and dogs) that I think he would react well to training and the love of a family and be the perfect addition to his forever home.

I am puzzled as to how Loki is still in kennels. He is not only beautiful to look at (like a teddy bear), but his personality is just so playful. He is like a big puppy! I have only had the pleasure of taking him out once, but if he is still in kennels the next time I come to walk dogs, I would not hesitate to take him out. Despite appearing "large" due to his beautiful fur coat, he is not intimidating or overly difficult to handle. Playful, yes, but during my wander with him and play in the paddock, at no point was he beyond my control. He has the most adorable face and the video below shows him doing a playful little bouncy run. I so wish I could give him a home, but living in a flat with cats is not appropriate for him. I hope his family comes forward for him now as what a wonderful member of the family Loki will be! Two videos below:

Loki had a nice run today, he quite enjoys canicross. He got a bit excited at the start and did his whizzing around but he soon settled and was very responsive when I said no and he calmed down. He enjoyed several paddles and found a large stick in the river. On the way back we passed two on lead greyhounds, he wanted to play but I held on to him by his harness grip, he was strong but not at all aggressive and as soon as they went by, just carried on without a fuss.

Loki and I had another run yesterday morning before it got too warm, he was very good, calm and just ran alongside me. Having taken him out two days in a row and doing a bit of running with him, he was so calm and settled and he loved getting into the river to cool down along the way.
