This handsome big fella has been making strides in our home since having a trainer come in and help us work with Leo and his confidence. He was fearful of new people and would bark at them.
He now greets people much better, and his two foster brothers are helping him gain his confidence as well. Speaking of foster brothers, Leo still is very much a puppy, however, having his foster brothers to play with and playing many brain games and making him work for his food makes him a much happier and tired out dog.
He does well outside of the crate day and night as long as things are picked up and counters are free of things he can get into. We have lots of plants in the house and he leaves them alone. Leo does great when crated for short periods of time, and has had a couple of bathes since coming to stay with us and has done great each time.
He is also a big guy that does not realize his size so a family that has older children would be best so they can teach Leo boundaries when playing. Leo would love a fenced yard to be able to run, play, and explore, although not necessary, but being a young boy he does need daily exercise and mental stimulation.
We have been working on teaching him sit, lie down and stay. He is doing really well with all three especially if his foster pups are by his side helping him learn. Leo is a great young lad with lots of love to give!
