More About Us
Benny and Benji have the 'x-factor' and will make a wonderful addition to a home able to give them the tender loving care they deserve. They are good with kids, other dogs and love to play. Devoted to each other, they cannot be separated. They require someone home more often than not as they become anxious when left alone for more then half the day. As Benji currently tends to bark when lonely their new owner will need to be able to undertake some training. We expect this will improve when he has more attention, regular exercise and training. In the mean time consideration to the proximity of neighbours needs to be considered. The dogs need to be welcome to be involved with family activities.
They will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters, time poor or full time workers.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Benny will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker. Benji barks when alone but this should improve with more attention, exercise and training. They will suit any of the following:
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
They are friendly, playful, loving and gentle - good with kids and other dogs. They can get anxious if left alone for more than half a day and whine.
Medium - playful and moderately active. They love the beach and the park equally.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs they start off pulling but settle when using gentle leader chest harnesses.
When OFF a lead ...
Sometimes good and sometimes bad. This breed tends to chase birds and may take off without warning. They usually come back when called, unless there is something very exciting to look at.
Type of Yard Required
Medium sized interesting and secure yard.
