This handsome young lad is Riley! He's just 1 years old, Riley is full of character and will make the perfect companion. He loves other dogs and would happily live with one that is calm and confident. If he doesn't go to live with a dog, it's important that he has regular play dates with some doggy friends. Riley loves his treats which will help with the further training he requires.Apart from tastey treats, Riley's favourite thing to do is play with his toys, chase and fetch are his favourite games.
Type of home needed
Riley can be a bit nervous and sometimes finds the world a little over whelming, his ideal home would be with a family with children 16 years and over, this will create the calm environment he needs. Any owner needs to be patient with him and allow him the time he needs to settle and get adjusted to home life. Riley loves being outside and going for walks, however he needs to live somewhere where he can walk away from roads and car travel isn't necessary as he is not yet comfortable getting in the car. He will need to live in a house with a fully secure garden that he can run around and play in. Due to his nervous temprament its improtant the owners aren't wanting lots of regular visitors round as this will be too much for him. He can be reactive to certain noises so having a garden that doesn't have neighbouring dogs is important so he can enjoy playing and sunbathing. before he can pack his bags owners need to be patient and prepared to continue building his confidence and further training as he settles.
More about me
Owners would need to have collie experience and be willing to visit the centre multiple times to get to know Riley. They would also need to be happy to continue working with the centre after he's in the home if required.
