We have no history on Dutchess so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Dutchess displays as a young, social, enthusiastic dog. She will benefit from daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend food puzzles, as well as long lasting chews, daily walks, exercise, and play to positively direct her enthusiasm.
