All About DIPPER (NANS DIPPER)

Dipper has been on a weekend foster to help us learn more about him. He's a very laid back dog in the home.

Whilst he likes having attention, he doesn't need it all the time and is happy to lie quietly on his bed. He needs more practice when it comes to toilet training but we're sure he'll get the hang of it once he has more time in a home environment and consistent training.

Dipper is getting more used to going out and about and is doing much better at walking past other dogs calmly. He's still a little unsure how to greet politely without lunging towards them but with more time and exposure we think he'll get the hang of it.

His foster carers described his a "super dog"  He "Dipper ambles along on walks, can pull if he wants to sniff something...over there! Curious about little dogs but nothing too dramatic. Stands and stares at the squirrels so no gymnastics at the end of the lead .Not phased by traffic and crossed the road calmly. He's a slow eater but no food guarding. Not bothered by washing machine or TV."

Dipper wasn’t phased by children, bikes or a busy playground. Some boys came past kicking a football which he thought was great fun, again easily moved on. He is so lovely and affectionate. A real people dog and I think as long as he is with people he would happily go anywhere!

They felt that "practice makes perfect" and with a little more experience of the outside world, he'll make a wonderful pet.
