Teddy is a 7 month old male Labrador Retriever. Teddy arrived 2-6-19. If you would be interested in adopting Teddy after he completes his training, please contact his Rescue, Lu's Labs at https://www.luslabs.org/application/.
Week 1. Teddy is quite the wild child. But, given his age, that is expected. Teddy has food bowl and water bowl aggression, but in the short time he's been in the program his handler is already making progress. The biggest issue was getting Teddy to trust his handler. He is already showing that trust, although for some reason, he will growl and bark at his handler when he in put in the crate ONLY AT NIGHT. He will also bark at the guards at night. He doesn't have this behavior if he is crated during the day. No issues whatsoever. He immediately stops when his handler opens the crate door at night. His handler will figure out what triggers this behavior and address the issue. Teddy loves the other dogs and people. He does mouth a bit (no biting) but given his age, that's not surprising. He's doing much better on his leash walking since he put on the Easy Walk Harness. And he is perfection at fetch. He will return the ball to whoever throws it EVERY TIME :-)
