HAS THE DOG EVER BITTEN ANYONE- Yes in first home. No details known.
In one week forever home - wiping paws and taking lead off. Advice given was ignored. Overstimulation and not giving Bailey space.
He is not an aggressive dog. He mouths and occasionally snaps with excitement. He used to snap when you put his lead on. Managed with “sit” and back tickles. Paw wiping after walks. Back two are not a problem. He’s far too excited when he gets back from walks (even calm lead walks). He needs to check he hasn’t missed anything. So can make a fuss about front two
IS THE DOG OBSESSED WITH BALLS? OTHER TOYS? Bailey would chase tennis balls all day. We keep it to short 5 minute sessions during a walk. Then put them away

WHERE DOES THE DOG SPEND THE DAY- Free indoors
WHERE DOES THE DOG SPEND THE NIGHT- He sleeps in a bed in our daughters room. She’s got a high sleeper, so he can’t get on her bed. He slept upstairs on the landing in previous home.

HAPPY TO SLEEP THE DAY AWAY WITH REGULAR EXERCISE. At first he will follow you everywhere. Bailey is settled and will find a comfy spot for a snooze.
