About Stark

Laid back, not high-strung. Is skittish towards loud noises but doesn't react aggressively. Is used to being restrained and handled/touched everywhere. Intelligent and receptive to training & boundaries (the rooms in the house he's not allowed in he doesn't dare go in, even if his ball rolls into that room!) Knows sit, down, heel, "drop it" (in regards to anything he's holding in his mouth), a little shaky on coming when called if off leash. We do NOT allow him to walk ahead of us, even a little bit, when he's on the leash. If he does, he gets told to heel, followed by a quick pop on the leash if he doesn't respond right away. He's usually a rock star on walks... but it should be noted that he still gets very distracted and playful when we walk him with another dog! (We're working on this) Will be neutered at 6 months of age, until then, it should be noted that he does like to play "hump" female dogs. We don't have kids, but the few toddlers he's been around he's basically ignored. Very little reaction to little people one way or the other. He doesn't bother to chase cats when we go walking through our neighborhood. On walks he just takes notice of them and moves on. In a persons home he'll get curious and follow them around for a while but eventually looses interest. He will not wet his crate! He knows he's supposed to potty outdoors, and will even whine at the back door when he needs to go out, so accidents are rare these days. Loves playing with other dogs! Also seems to love water! Tolerates having his nails trimmed with a dremmel very well. Also loves car rides (but we don't let him ride with the window down)
