Filbert is a Husky mixed with Redbone Coonhound. He is just about a year old. Filbert is a happy, energetic puppy who is working with a trainer. He’s learning “sit”, “down”, “come” and to temper his enthusiasm. He is also learning boundaries. He likes to play with other dogs, but he does play rough. He also wants to play with his people and is learning to not jump on them or accidently nip while getting his toy and to “be careful”. He chases balls. He likes to spend time in the backyard exploring and chasing squirrels (he doesn’t catch them). In the house, he likes to chew on bones and toys. He is happy to go on walks and runs and keeps track of his person.
Filbert wants to please. He is motivated by treats and praise. He will do well with an active family with older children and a large fenced yard. He tests when he first meets new people and would be happy to be the boss. After a couple corrections, he remembers his manners. He sleeps in his crate.
