Skip is a 5 year old kelpie cross, who can be described as a mix between a dog and a cat! Skip loves lying around in the sun all day, and when the sun is hiding, you will find him happily curled up on his bed.
Skip has never been particularly good at fetch, but you can get him to play for a few moments before he chooses to head off for a snooze instead.
When Skip was a puppy he went to puppy class, and was second in his class at obedience training (go Skip!). Skip can “play dead” at the sight of a finger point and the sound of a bang, but never quite got the hang of recall – so needs to be walked on a leash, or in a secure area.
Skip enjoys playing with other dogs and loves meeting new people. Skip can get excited when meeting new people, but will calm down after 15 minutes or so. When Sasha was introduced to the family, Skip did start to growl a bit at other dogs when out for a walk with Sasha.
Skip is used to being around younger children, is housetrained and stays off furniture and out of rooms that he is not supposed to be in. Skip will sit and wait patiently for food, and doesn’t eat the furniture either!
Skip will happily spend time in the backyard during the day, but it will need to be fenced.
