Hi my name is Ollie and I'm looking for someone who understands my collie traits and can help me become the super dog I know I can be! Ollie will require a home with vast experience of training working collie types, he has strong chase drive to movement, is vigilant to noise and is exuberant, physically and mentally. Will require an adult only home, walks in areas away from traffic (sound sensitive to the noise). Plenty of physical activity as high energy, must combine with mental stimulation as busy mind. Needs help and guidance to be more social around/meeting with dogs, can be reactive when on lead, advise not to live with. Not suited to live with cats, birds or small furries. Will not cope living in a town setting. House trained, used to travelling in the car, not used to being left, will howl. The kennel team are currently giving Ollie extra support to prepare him for his new home. Ollie needs a quiet household with access to enclosed gardens. Potential adopters will need to bear in mind they may possibly have to visit the centre several times, to get to know him.
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your dog needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Dogs are very social and love spending time with people and sometimes other animals.
· Physical exercise - At least a couple walks a day.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / training.
· A healthy diet - Normally two feeds a day of the food type and quantity appropriate for the dog. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp, where they can rest.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around dogs to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each dog has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your dog please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
