Silva is a handsome dog and a joy to walk and be with, though is uncomfortable with direct and prolonged eye contact from unfamiliar people. Through positive, reward-based training he learns to feel safe and will actively and happily make eye contact. He would do best with an experienced family without young childern, who will continue using reward-based, force-free training with him.
