Introducing Yoko, if he hasn’t got his head in a hole then he’s digging one!
This cheeky chap has plenty of personality and energy to match. He requires a home that can provide him with lots of outdoor activity as he has high energy levels and loves nothing more than an adventure. He will make the perfect companion for a Sunday afternoon hike followed by a pit stop in a pub garden. Yoko is incredibly clever and thrives when learning so will benefit from extra outlets like obedience training, agility or tracking.
He requires an adult only home, as he can be a typical tenacious terrier at times. Being a Jagdterrier, he has a very high prey drive meaning a home with small fury’s, livestock or cats would not be considered. It would be beneficial that his new owner is social with other dogs so he can interact and socialise with other canine companions; however, he will need to live in a home where he is the only dog as he likes all the attention to be on him!
Yoko could be left for 2-3 hours once built up to his new home. He’s great at keeping himself entertained so long as he’s provided with plenty of squeaky toys or food enrichment! He loves toys, and has even been learning a ‘drop and take’ cue which he’s picked up very quickly. He knows many basic commands from sit, down, wait, leave, paw and drop – he’s a sharp cookie when it comes to training!
His new owner(s) will need to be confident and patient as he has a history of resource guarding high value items. This behaviour is easily controlled within a home so long as the correct preventatives, management and training is being carried out; CDCH will show a new owner how to deal with this. An experienced terrier owner would be ideal as they will have a better understanding of his traits but this isn’t essential so long as you were willing to learn and understand his body language and behaviour.
Yoko will thrive in a highly energetic home that can offer him plenty of exercise, fun activities and of course lots of play. Are you a confident and out-going owner who can offer him all of the above? Because you may be his perfect match!
