Good things about my dog: Toya is loving, submissive and smart. he likes to be with people and is very social with other dogs and strangers. He is very trainable and already knows and obeys a number of commands.
Quirks: Toya may mouth (grab a hand in his mouth) when nervous or cornered. He grows anxious when left alone. Symptoms include vocalising and chewing. Using a muzzle will calm him down (will be provided). He is still very excited when new people enter his house but is much better at not jumping up on them.

Daily routine: Toya is used to up to 3 walks a day. He loves runs and spending time outside. He eats in the morning and at night (a mix of wet and dry food). He likes to sleep in the same room as his humans. He will prompt you when he wants to go out and will ask to come in. He likes spending as much time around people as he can.
Training: Toya has good recall, sits, lies down, rolls over, and to drop and leave items. He is trained not to go on furniture.
Social skills: Toya is playful with other dogs and very submissive. He responds well to commands and is eager to please. He is happy to meet new people and is very friendly.
