Cosmo loves his morning walks and greets with an excited wagging tail when he knows it's time to go out to explore. Cosmo is a creature of habit; while he enjoys running in open spaces that he is familiar with, unfamiliar faces, places and traffic have the tendency to unnerve him. With gradual positive reinforcement, harnessing his trainable potential as a canine companion will be an enjoyable process.
- Going out for walks
- Having a bit of time and space to get to know new people and environments
- Short belly rubs and back scratches from people he knows
- Making him stay put if unfamiliar people approach head-on – build some distance instead
- Stroking him for too long (more than a minute) as he may get mouthy
This dog marked Adoption By Appointment (ABA) will require you to make a prior appointment to view and interact with him. He needs more specialized care and training and therefore a counselor well versed with this dog will be at hand during the appointed meeting. Please call 62875355 ext 24 to make an appointment. If you are unable to get through to speak to someone, please leave a voice message and a staff or volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible.
