All About Me

Physical: Ketch is black, white, and tan with floppy ears, and white under her chin and down the front of her neck. Although she has no tail, she wags her little stump.

Profile: A smart, strong-willed dog, Ketch loves a job to do. She does great with obedience, agility or nosework training to engage her mind. Super-athletic, she would make a great running partner for an energetic human friend. Ketch is a beautiful high-energy dog who needs plenty of exercise to live her best life. She is highly motivated by food and loves to play with toys, which definitely makes training easier.

Like most smart dogs, she has a mind of her own and can be a bit stubborn sometimes, but with a firm trainer, she can be persuaded to follow your lead. We are currently working on basic obedience training with her as well as impulse control.

We are looking for an experienced dog owner who enjoys dog training and is excited to work with Ketch.

Ketch loves people! She is a bit much for children to handle so we are looking for a home without kids. She loves attention and is not looking to share her humans with other animals.

Ketch is fully crate- and house-trained. When she is bored, she still has a tendency to chew on inappropriate objects, but providing enough exercise and appropriate chewing items keeps her happy. Ketch is healthy, full of energy, and waiting for a patient human who is willing to invest time and energy in her training to help her reach her full potential.
