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 !!!

Alfie came to us with excess energy and minimal training so he was very frustrated when he arrived and was a little worried by strangers. Now that he is having frequent walks as well as lots of enrichment and interaction to keep his mind stimulated, he is much more settled, however, he will need owners willing to keep up with his ongoing training. Although he is starting to learn some manners he will need a calm, patient, adult only home, who will have an understanding of positive reinforcement training and/or be willing to seek the help of a behaviourist for support going forward if needed.

Alfie can be very strong on lead because he just LOVES to sniff and explore the outside world, so he is definitely looking for an active home where he will get lots of walks in all weathers! Once Alfie gets to know you he is a total snuggle bug and loves rolling on his back for a tummy rub after a long walk. He is such a sweetie that simply loves having his human friends around so he doesn’t want to be left for long periods. Alfie is super motivated by his tummy so eagerly does a sit, paw and lay down for a tasty treat! In fact one of Alfie’s favourite activities is Scentwork with his treats – we find this really helps him to stay calm and use his energy in a positive way so would love his new owner to be open to trying this in his new home!

While Alfie is making great progress with us here at Rain, we feel that a home environment away from the stress of kennels is the best place for him to continue learning about the world. We know the right home is a lot to ask for but despite his struggles this boy has SO much potential and with the right support will make a wonderful companion for his new family.

If you are an experienced dog owner with training who is interested we would be more than happy to discuss him in more detail and about his ongoing training needs.
