Meet Frank! Frank is a new graduate of our P.A.C.K. Program, a 9-week intensive program for routine obedience, agility, and handling training with a prison inmate trainer and he is almost ready to show off his new skills!
His new abilities include ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘shake’ and more! New adopters should realize that PACK Program graduates will require regular, ongoing reinforcement of learned behaviors in order for them to become permanent. Frank is a high energy boy. Partly due to his breed, and partly because he is just young and has a joyous outlook on life.
He likes to engage with his handler, but is also ok just doing his own thing too. He likes to play with other dogs. Some dogs may not like his playstyle, as he likes to be in their face and nip at them to indicate he wants to be chased. We will do a dog meet if you have other canines at home.
Frank can be naughty when left out of his crate, so it’s best he is kenneled when you are not home. He also can be a bit sensitive. When he gets in trouble or told ‘no’, he can sulk and slink away for a while. He can get over excited and can be mouthy sometimes. He’s also adverse to having his feet and tail handled. He will retreat and try to get away from you. Because of these things, it’s best if he doesn’t go to a home with small kids.
Frank was bred to hunt and does have some training for that under his collar already from his previous home. If you are looking for a bird dog – Frank might just be your guy! Frank seems to be ok with cats here at our adoption center. He really seems to shy away from them and be almost a bit frightened of them. He is ready to show off his newly improved skills and find the loving home he deserves. If you give him love, he’ll repay you with kisses and full body wiggles. Apply to meet him today!
