Meet DUCHESS (Duthie) - your loving companion!
DUCHESS is a cuddlebug who enjoys lounging on the couch and being close to her favorite human. Her affectionate nature makes her an ideal lap dog. She gets along well with other dogs and can engage in play for extended periods. If potential adopters have another dog, she would likely appreciate the companionship. Dutchie prefers a calm household, particularly with women. While she may take some time to warm up to men, she does eventually build trust with them. She's mostly house-trained and exhibits signals when she needs to go out. Crate training is a work in progress for Dutchie, but she seems to benefit from a properly covered crate. This can be further improved with patience and training. Hard chew toys and fabric-covered rubber toys are her favorites. She enjoys interactive play, making her a fun and engaging companion. She does fairly well on a leash when using a harness or Martingale collar. However, she may become vocal and pull when encountering other dogs or men. Positive reinforcement and consistent training can help her improve on walks. Dutchie experiences separation anxiety, which may result in barking. An adopter who works from home or can provide gradual training to ease her anxiety would be an excellent match. A secure, fenced yard is a must for Dutchie as it allows her to have a safe space to play and explore. While she enjoys playtime with dogs, she may not be comfortable in dog park settings. Active walks and positive reinforcement training are more suitable for her exercise needs.
