LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE
Klaus is a handsome, healthy, 2 year old, neutered, 30kg male. Klaus would benefit living with a pet-free and childless home with a more energetic owner who is home all day. Because Klaus has never been tested with or around young children, use extra caution. Klaus plays very rough with other dogs, and he dislikes small dogs so he would need to be controlled and supervised when around them and not let off leash. Smaller animals can bring out his prey drive randomly. If possible it would be best to avoid them.
Klaus loves to go on long walks and excursions whenever possible. He enjoys retrieving the ball and dropping it at your feet. Klaus will stand still to be washed, and raises his feet at the door to towel off his dirty paws after being outside. He has had minimal exposure to swimming, but has no fear of water. He enjoys a good towel rub to dry off after rain or wading in a kiddie pool. He enjoys being brushed. Loves getting his ears rubbed and his chest. However, He does not like being grabbed around his waist.
Klaus wears a muzzle at the vet, and during nail trimming situations, as he doesn’t immediately trust strangers touching him. He gladly chews his toys while you hold it, takes treats gently from your hand, he has not shown any food, or toy resource guarding, outside of his crate. He does seem to prefer to be indoors more than being outdoors; he enjoys human companionship all the time. He has never tried to escape the fully fenced yard, and has never dug holes. He does however bark at people who walk past the yard. Klaus is easily distracted outdoors so needs to be kept supervised whilst in the yard.
Klaus is clean, does not potty inside the house. He is not crated at night; he sleeps with his owner in the bed, usually at the foot of the bed. He has dog beds, but never sleeps or lays on any – he prefers the bed or sofa someone is sitting on. Klaus is crated, when unattended, for his own safety as he has scratched and chewed things in the past. He has never been left unattended for more than 4 hours, ever.
Klaus has basic obedience training and walks well on a leash with minimal pulling when reminded. Using a properly fitted Martingale collar is strongly suggested when walking Klaus on leash. Klaus has randomly shown dog to dog aggression but not all the time.
Vaccinations are all up to date as of 16 January 2019 and he is microchipped.
