Yes. Tyler loves playing with male and female dogs. His excitement and exuberance can sometimes upset other dogs so he needs to be monitored when meeting new friends in case someone else gets grumpy.
Yes but he might accidentally knock a child over. Tyler is a great playmate for kids but has a tendency to jump up when excited. We recommend any kids be primary school aged or older and only if gentle, quiet and calm.
Tyler has high exercise requirements and will run for hours. If you miss a day’s exercise he will be hard to manage and won’t settle. When he has been at day care with other dogs he is totally calm - a perfect little angel. If you are time poor or have mobility issues Tyler will not be a good match.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs his age Tyler is fine unless he sees something exciting. He is a strong and excitable 27 kg goof ball. His current carers use a halti harness.
How is this dog off the lead?
Tyler needs some work in this area because at the moment he will take off and won’t come back.
He may take advantage of a gate inadvertently being left open and dash out on an adventure but he is not currently a ‘Houdini.’
Tyler is not currently a nuisance barker. No.
He would rather chew his toys and bones than furniture, but he may improvise if you don’t exercise him and don’t give him anything of his own.
Tolerance to being alone.
Tyler would prefer to have human company. However, once in the company of other dogs he doesn't seem to notice, or react, when his humans leave. But to be fair he has never really been alone, even in the company of other dogs, for long. If you leave him totally alone for extended periods of time he will cry.
His favourite thing in the world is time with other dogs (especially Labradors). Spending time with his favourite humans is a close second. Being chased and playing with tug toys are also top on the list. If you throw a toy he expects you to chase and get it off him. Tyler is food motivated, enjoys his walks and his own chew toys.
He dislikes car travel as it seems to make him nervous.
Active families with older kids would suit Tyler. He needs a secure medium to large yard so if you live in a unit or villa he won’t suit your circumstances. The company of another dog and/or someone home more often than not would also be ideal.
Tyler is still a pup and will benefit by ongoing training so folks who have experience with this breed would be preferable. His new family need enough time and energy to keep him mentally and physically stimulated and provide cuddles when he's tired.
Tyler is intelligent, loyal and active. he is also easy to train. He can also be a little mischievous in an endearing way that makes him quite a loveable character. He loves to be chased and will sometimes steal things he knows he's not meant to have in order to instigate the game.
While he loves to play he is also extremely affectionate.
Tyler is not the type of dog who can amuse himself for long periods of time and prefers another dog or human company. Tyler is cute, silly, and has a zest for life. He loves everybody whether they be human or canine and gets ‘snuggly’ when he's ready to settle down and sleep.
Tyelr’s mum has a debilitating health condition that is deteriorating and his dad works very long hours
