Could you believe that behind this sweet face there are many behavior issues? Resource guarding, crazy prey drive, but he is okay with the cat (?), not much recall, eating tissues, paper towels, hair... Are we ever going to find out what do dogs think? 😂
But Thore is sweet and a very fast learner, he just proved it to us working on kennel training.
