Details on my behavior are…
Marley will bark a few times when entering the adoption room, when I approach his kennel, he is loose, wiggly and eager to come out. He allows me to leash him no problem. In the yard, Marley loves to play fetch with a rubber ball. He enjoys laying out on a blanket chewing on the toy. He allows handlers to reach for the toy and toss it to him. Marley knows the cues ” sit, Left paw and Right paw” Marley goes into his kennel with no problems.
