came for a sleepover yesterday. We went for a walk at the kennels first then some paddock time and finally a bath. This was a two man job and Pattie from the kennels was my much needed second pair of hands. Marley
was not really sure what was going on so kept trying to make a run for it!
travelled really well in the car, curling up on the front seat. To say he was excited when first arriving in the flat would be an understatement!
He run around like a loon for 5 minutes, then sniffed and investigated everything. It was a bit like having a full grown puppy in the flat. I didn't begrudge Marley
any of this as he has not had much time out of kennels in his life so he was bound to be excited. As time wore on he calmed down and had a snooze on the dog bed.Marley
has a cough at the moment so I have been trying to keep him from exerting himself...no easy task, but he has enjoyed spoonfuls of honey to help sooth his throat. He slept on the bed last night and was a lovely snuggly boy. Marley
can get over-excited but I have found it easy to distract him from getting too excited and rewarding him for calm behaviour. If only there were more weekends in the week I would be able to foster this boy regularly too!
He has been so chilled out today. My dad popped by for a coffee and Marley
gave him a very friendly greeting and after a few minutes for very excited hellos Marley
chilled down and went back to enjoying his chew!Marley
is housetrained and goes to toilet quickly on his walks. He is a very affectionate boy who likes cuddles, not overly licky. He listens most of the time!
He wants to please and reads people well. He is a higher energy dog who I think would enjoy an active home.
