Poodle (Standard) : : Male : : Young : : Large
DOG LOCATION: Bowmanville, ON. Meet Bentley. Beautiful, black, 1 1/2 year old boy who will leap and bound his way into your heart. He is fun and happy but scared of meeting new people so he needs a little bit of time to warm up to you. A liver treat will help!
While in our care we're learning a lot about Bentley. He is quite affectionate and likes to be around people. He'll get up on the couch with you and snuggle right in. He loves to run and play in the yard and is quite great at playing fetch!
In foster care Bentley is learning a lot. Sit, down, come, stay, shake a paw, how to potty outside. Oops, yes, he is a 1 1/2 year old boy who wasn't house trained when he came to us. Thankfully he is smart and now goes potty outside all the time and he likes to learn so he's picking up the house rules quickly!
Ok, ok, not all the house rules! Bentley thinks all food is for him and he doesn't mind looking on the counter or the table for his food. He'll need to learn to keep his feet on the floor but this is something his new family is going to have to get used to and all food should be watched or put away.
Bentley doesn't have great manners when seeing or meeting new dogs. He gets really, really excited and he will bark and jump around and pull to get to the dog. And then he'll keep barking and pulling. This behaviour is loud and will not be welcome by most dogs. Actually, you won't like it either, but thankfully this behaviour will get better with continued training.Bentley is living with a dog now and they play well together.
If you're interested in meeting Bentley please email us to start the conversation.
