More About Me
Being a Kelpi cross she needs a large outdoor space where she can be active and also have mental stimulation - otherwise she tends to chew (to be expected of a young dog). Acreage would be even better. She needs the company of adults and/or other dogs during the day. She barks to alert but can be commanded to stop and is likely to improve when she has K9 or human company.
With a little training Bowie will be a gem.
She is not suited in homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
High - will run and run, cannot miss a day. Great jogging buddy.
When ON a lead ...
Excitable. May pull a small child over.
When OFF a lead ...
Bowie's recall needs work - easily distracted.
Type of Yard Required
She may wander off if a gate is left open but normal shoulder height fencing is fine. She needs a secure medium to large interesting yard or acreage.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Needs companionship of adults or if you work full time, another dog.
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Bowie is affectionate, friendly, outgoing, very smart, easy to train, funny and loyal. She does not like hail storms, loud noises or being left alone. She loves to lick you all over and has a beautiful disposition.
