Twix is a very sweet and very nervous. He needs extra time to warm up to people and prefers to come to you (do not reach for/at him). He is smart and lively and loves food- making him an excellent candidate for positive reinforcement based training. He lacks confidence but loves attention from people once he trusts you. Experienced dog owners/training recommended. This dog comes with a voucher that should be used within 6 months of adoption date.
Twix will need a routine permanent family household situation. Owners must be experienced in positive reinforcement dog training or be willing to learn and utilize the voucher for this dog. Owners should expect to work on socialization to handling, new situations, and new things at a pace that works for him. Adopters will also need to house train him. Crate training is recommended for house training a dog or puppy as it is the most efficient and effective method- it also helps prevent destructive chewing, door darting, and gives a dog a place to retreat. Recommend a positive reinforcement training class to instill good dog manners, provide socialization, and build a strong dog/adopter bond- This dog has a voucher for discounted classes. – See more at: http://icanimalcenter.org/pages/directory/twix-3374.php#sthash.BBRuIEZ3.dpuf
