More About Me

Will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.

When ON a lead ...
As is normal she starts off pulling but settles.
When OFF a lead ...
Sometimes good and sometimes bad.
Type of Yard Required
Tia requires a medium to large interesting and secure yard or even acreage. As is expected with a dog this age she may chew or dig if left alone without mental stimulation for long periods.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Tia barks but can be commanded to stop.
She currently barks when alone but this is expected to improve with the right amount of exercise and interaction with family. She prefers company of people but can cope alone during the day. She will be ok with full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as she is a central focus when the family is home.
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
