Running, sheep herding, Balls, Kongs, Food, Playing with Bitches, Car rides.
Grooming, Nail cutting, Having to do stuff, he doesn't want to do. Anyone near his car! Other Male dogs.
Anything Mum can throw. Best a deflated soccer ball, most of which has been demolished.
dried liver & everything else edible & much that isn't, like the remains of his ball.
the local park, anywhere he can Run free, & 'Car walks'...Anywhere the Car goes, will do..
Super fast! RECALLS!!! Guarding 'HIS' car, Retrieving toys, Tracking, Herding sheep, Begging for food (especially IF heTHINKS someone will 'give in' & feed him). Giving High five paws. Waving. Finding hidden items.
I, his 'Mum' didn't want to breed another litter of puppies, but knew Charlie's breeder for many years. Mum bought me from her breeder friend, & I flew in from interstate, when only 8 wks old. She wanted another Chocolate b.c. Boy was that some trip. I had to change planes & missed the connection because the airlines stuffed up. I had to wait hours for the next plane. Finally made it to the destination, arrived tired, hungry, & fed up!..wouldn't you be after 8 hrs in a tiny box! Dark grr...no humans to love & pet me, till I landed. Boy was I glad to meet my mum & her friend..they took me out to pee, & fed me chicken wings & water, then I got to ride in the car from airport to 'home' & meet Keira & Tassy. That was fun & exciting! but I was a very tired baby, after all that travelling.
Way too smart for his own good!!!! Was doing demo recalls in a nursing home at 9weeks old! The residents just loved him!
Charlie is a NUT!!!
When he is good, he is very very good, when he is bad, he is horrid! (But he does have an excuse...read on)
He is a 'problem child', but we think it was caused by trauma.
He accidently ran full pelt into steel poles as a baby, bad concussion.
Now has to be medicated for the rest of his life...it appears he may have done frontal lobe damage. Very sad!!! He had a super temperament until the accident, now he is 'unreliable' & can have aggressive fits, withOUT his medication.
But MUCH loved always!!!!!! Spoilt rotten! Has 2 b.c girls to live with....& 2 budgies which he would love to EAT! or Play?? with, to their detriment, no doubt. Can spend hours staring hopefully at the cages.
Dispostion can range from aggressive fits with no obvious triggers.... to anxious/possesive to calm & everything inbetween. Depends on his mood & the situation. The medication is thankfully, controlling the "aggressive fits" now though, so he should lead a fairly normal life . Mum just has to make sure he takes his daily pill & is not exposed to situations which could trigger an 'attack'.
He is fine, now the a. fits are controlled. Loves everyone again. Behaves perfectly normally..is very easy to train, & loves to work!
