More About Me
She is a massive sook and just loves pats and cuddles. The more affection the better. She is playful, loyal and quick to learn.
Daisy is ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as she is a central focus when people are home.
As Daisy needs ongoing training she needs a firm but kind owner.
It is recommended she is the only permanent dog in the home as a precaution.
As daisy is people orientated she needs to be part of family activities.
She will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters, novice dog owners or time poor.
Medium - playful and moderately active (can miss a daily walk).
Daisy seems to like to go on walks but it can be an anxiety-ridden event. She loves food based enrichment toys at home as well as squeaky toys, soft toys, and balls to play with. She loves a game of tug-of-war too.
When ON a lead ...
Pulls but will likely improve with training. She is strong and needs a capable owner. As a puppy Daisy had a tendency to be anxious and now as an adult, can react when she sees other dogs. She used to play beautifully with other dogs but hasn't been given the chance of late.
When OFF a lead ...
Sometimes good and sometimes bad.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker.
Daisy will suit any of the following:
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Daisy loves soft and squeaky toys and tennis balls. She also loves food. She can take time to warm to new friends. Most of all, she loves human cuddles and any affection. Daisy still thinks she's a puppy and would love to spend time on your lap if allowed. She understands "get your ball" "where's your toy" "where's your teddy?"
Daisy is not a fan of water - swimming, hoses, etc. but will swim WITH you in the sea. She travels well in the car.
Daisy is excitable when you arrive home and still jumps up. She is not protective over her food but will happily steal another's.
She knows not to steal human food...unless they're not looking, of course.
As she has not been getting a lot of attention lately she has started to display over excitement where she cannot seem to hear people and has trouble settling herself. In this heightened state she has displayed some anxiety and aggression. This is why she needs a firm but kind owner who can encourage her to control herself through training and positive reinforcement. Daisy comes with free training sessions.
Daisy currently lives with a 13 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback.
