Like his namesake the famous detective, Holmes is inquisitive & loves nothing better than being given a puzzle to solve. He enjoys scent work & learning tricks & picks things up quickly. He can be worried by visitors to his home so we're teaching him to greet nicely. He's still young & bouncy but after a run settles with a kong or chew to keep him occupied. When he knows and trusts you he loves to have fuss.
Type of home needed
Holmes is looking for an adult only home without too many visitors for him to get used to. He would like owners who will carry on with his training, as he loves to learn. He enjoys having canine walking buddies but he'd prefer to be the only dog in the home so that he has all of your attention. As Holmes is nervous of strangers approaching him, quiet areas to go walking in would suit him. Holmes is playful and fun and once you have Holmes as a friend, you have a friend for life.
