1/12 – 13: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Neptune is tolerant of polite approach. Neptune engages in a bit of play, then becomes overwhelmed by pushy play.
During initial medical exam, Neptune appeared to allow all handling, friendly and eager to play.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
_X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control (It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended.)
_X_Mouthiness/Poor bite inhibition
