2 year old – Black Labrador Retriever
Weight: 63.50 pounds
Paula loves car rides. She normally lays down in the back and naps while in the car. She never jumps from the vehicle without permission to release from sitting position or a command of “let’s go.”
Toys and stuffed animals; she loves them. However, toys are no match for Paula and life is short for stuffed animals. Kongs with a little peanut butter will keep Paula busy for hours. Micro-fleece blankets or tug ropes are also no match for this rough and tumble girl. So be watchful if she is permitted to play with any of these items. They will not be intact for long.
In public. Paula is happy to see everyone. She needs positive reinforcement not to greet adults, dogs, and children. She likes to investigate so redirection to a stay or settle position is necessary.
Paula needs extensive socialization with other dogs to get over her reactive tendency in public. At home she is very social and will enjoy sitting quietly with other canines. However, if she plays it must be supervised. She tends to be a dominant player.
Paula loves to cuddle and spend time snuggling with you. After a quick cuddle she prefers to lay on the cool tile floor. Her favorite reward from a handler – is a belly rub or scratching her ears.
