(St Catherine, Jamaica West Indies)
My dog is energy central, you could utilize her energy and light a village, loves attention but does not crave it. Loves playing, and loves playing, and loves playing. The repeat was intended. She loves long walks and socialization.
She loves learning, and learns fast, her intelligence for a dog is frightening. Another noticeable thing with this dog and I’m not sure if it’s the breed, is they learn even when they are not being taught, so be careful what they see you doing.
For example, My Smirnoff was observed doing some house keeping, my mom told me she saw her picking up the papers and throwing them out her house, bit by bit, then she went for the broom but it could not fit through the door post, how funny. These are some of the things my dog saw me doing daily while cleaning her house. She even defecate near a place where I dump her stool, well sometimes.
A great idea for a litter box is, I dig around a tree root and fill it with sand, I then teach the dog to mess there and, if your dog is a natural for covering his/her mess you are great, if not, just turn over the feces in the sand, job done, simple, great for the plant.
I must admit I wonder if my dog is at the right height and weight at times, people always says she is growing, I can never see it (hahaha). I have started her training early and will intensify this more. For now she is a great dog and I look forward to great future with her.
