Border Collie x Australian Cattle Dog
ISSUES: NOT good around cats (almost cleared 6ft fence to grab atreed kitten) or bicycles, barrier reactive with dogs, fear & leash reactive around new dogs & people
Nelson was owner surrendered, after consulting & working with several dog trainers on his reactive behaviours. Although he is very affectionate with the people he knows in the environments he knows, he is reactive when meeting new people while on a walk, hike or bike ride. He will lunge at , circle & bark at the new person(s) in the group or on the path & cannot seem to be redirected to appropriate behaviours.
Not feeling comfortable managing his behaviour in the active outdoor lifestyle that the owners led, they thought it best he be surrendered to rescue, where an appropriate home would be searched out.
