Taiko is a fun loving, high energy dog.  He loves to play outside, especially in the cooler months.  He loves the snow and to get to roam and sniff to his heart’s content.  He loves adults and kids and is always excited to meet new people and dogs.  He is very gentle and was 3 years old when we took our new baby home, absolutely no problems, he even slept at the foot of her crib during the young years.  He’s a big teddy bear.

Taiko did have an accident two years ago where he tore the cruciate ligament in one of his knees.  He had the best surgery available, a new hybrid process of the tibial plateau leveling osteotomy surgery which he was part of a study and the surgery was a great success.  He’s better than ever and you’d never know that he had the surgery.

Taiko is friendly with everyone, people, dogs, other types of animals.  He even once tried to play with a raccoon, he quickly realized the raccoon did not feel the same way. Taiko is always looking to have fun and exercise.  He loves to be able to run.

Taiko did have puppy training and when indoors and not distracted, he does follow basic commands such as sit and lie down.  He tends to pull on the leash when walked so a ‘Halty’ harness is used which solves the problem.  He sleeps indoors in our home, he has free roam of the house as he is very well behaved indoors.

Taiko is in very good health and had his last vaccines including rabies shot in June of 2016.  He currently eats Nutro grain-free dog food.
