Other commands Birdie knows include: heel, stand, drop (on your belly), down (don’t jump, but she loves greeting people at the door with a jump up), wait, stay, ready (eyes on me), come, spin (360 to right), twirl (360 to left), over (jump), shake, high five, settle (sit/lie and stay still). Her new family will want to brush up on all these commands. It will be fun!
For reasons we are not sure, when Birdie is allowed to obsess over a toy/ball she can become aggressive when touched, pulled or pushed away from the item- she has bitten. Therefore, Birdie was evaluated by a Dog Behaviorist who deemed her non-aggressive toward humans. She has only bitten while in the obsessive, high-intense-focused state, when her humans physically moved her (or tried to take her toy away). When Birdie reaches this threshold with her toy, she becomes unaware of her surroundings. Interrupting that focus by distraction using a treat or bouncing a ball is the recommended method. Continuation of simple games to desensitize touching of the tail/hind end/back feet are recommended. If given proper exercise the “obsessive moments” are easily controlled – Birdie is high energy, high-play, highly intelligent. Did I mention gorgeous? But that is not what’s important here…..
At 3 years old Birdie will be a minimum donation of $500.
