Toby is a 6 year old male English Springer Spaniel who has sadly been returned to us after biting in his new home. Toby will need a very special owner who can understand his issues. He has an issue with guarding things and will snap if attempt is made to take things off him. The way we deal with this is to ignore him and walk away. He doesnt like people getting hold of his collar and he objects to being made to move from one place to another. We deal with this by putting a slip lead on him and simply walking away with him. Unfortunately Toby has learnt in his past that he can make people go away by growling and snapping. He needs an owner who is not going to be scared of him and will stand up to him when he misbehaves. He has been in foster for several weeks now and we have managed his issues with no problem.
90% of the time Toby is a fab dog, he loves to cuddle up on your knee at night and lives for his walks and a ball game. He is happy and loving. Out on walks his recall is fab and he doesnt bother other people or dogs. He travels well in his crate in the van and gets in and out with no problems. He does pull on the lead but is better on an anti pull harness.
So, we are looking for someone with experience of dogs like Toby who can be confident and firm with him and not be nervous as he will play on this. In return, you will have a new best friend, a loyal dog and a complete cuddle monster. I am happy to discuss his issues in more detail with any applicants.
