Marina is a sweet five month old female Labrador Retriever.
She and her brothers came to our program after being surrendered to a local animal shelter.
They were the last of the litter and were getting too big for the breeder to sell.
Marina’s brothers, Loomis and Easton, have been adopted.
Marina is just starting to work on crate training (she barks) and house training (not there yet).
She gets along with everything and is a bit of a push over.
She loves toys and her food and hanging by her foster mom’s side.
During the day she is either out in the dog yard playing with a couple other pups or inside hanging in her foster mom’s office.
She also enjoys walks in the woods which she can do off leash because she stays right be our side and comes when called.
Marina will need work on building up her self-esteem which will happen when she is taken out to experience adventures.
This is a really nice dog.
There are many reasons why taking your new puppy to a dog class is a good thing:
encourage bonding, increase pups self-esteem, learn new things or new ways of teaching those old things, meet new people who love dogs too, have resources to help solve those doggy behaviors we don’t want, and maybe, just maybe, get involved in the world of doggy sports because today, there is a multitude of doggy sports for everyone!
Here are a few: Rally obedience, agility, musical freestyle, lure coursing, barn hunt, hose work, conformation, herding. Your wallet may be lighter when you go out and compete but your life will be fuller!
Let us know if you need help finding a dog obedience class in your area.
Local dog obedience clubs are a good place to look!
