Hi, I'm Alfie

I am a cheeky and loving boy but I have demanding training needs which will be ongoing in my new home.

Alfie’s story

Alfie is a 2 year old Shar Pei crossbreed with heaps of personality, energy and love that needs owners that can take all his qualities, shape them and work with him to harness that potential he has to channel it down the right road!

Play time is SNOW TIME !!!

Are you looking for a best friend to join you on your adventures? Even better, are you looking for a super smart and driven dog to participate in activities like canicross or scent work? Do you have experience training dogs with challenging behaviour using positive reinforcement techniques?

If so you could be the perfect home our Alfie has been waiting for!

This boy has so much potential but needs more than just a loving home and a daily walk to bring out the best in him. Alfie is super sharp and picks up everything we try with him super quickly making him the perfect companion for dog sports – he has tried out scentwork and canicross during his time at rain and been brilliant at both however we are confident he could turn his paw to most new skills!

The downside to this is Alfie is clever enough to make his own fun and pick up bad habits – because of this we will be looking for an owner who can be enthusiastic and consistent with continuing his positive training! In particular, Alfie struggles with handling and restraint so is being slowly desensitized to this. Due to a rocky start in life Alfie can also be very frustrated so is learning to develop some impulse control, however he will also need an adult only home with lots of walks and activities to keep him occupied and manage his frustration. We would love for his new owners to be happy to take the advice of a behaviourist on working with these issues and helping him to settle in. It is essential that Alfie’s new household is as calm and quiet as possible with no children or other pets as he is learning to relax and enjoy his downtime. 

Alfie has tonnes of personality and is so much fun to be around however he has a sensitive side and will need patient and understanding owners. While Alfie is not for the faint of heart, for the right home he really will be the perfect soulmate to share your life with. If you have the patience and the lifestyle to help Alfie become the amazing dog we know he has the potential to be then please get in touch to discuss him and his training needs in more detail!
