About me

Hi there.. Milo here. Now some things you need to know about me… I am incredibly active and very quick to learn. I am friendly with the dogs and people I meet when out but I’m still getting used to the world so I need to get used to new areas and the people and dogs there gradually and with support.

I am looking for a particular type of owner, ideally someone with experience of Collie’s or working dogs as I have very strong Collie traits and I am incredibly quick to learn, so I need clear guidance. I can be demanding for attention and I need to learn how to settle in a home and this will be on-going for my new owner.

I get bored quickly in the home so need someone who enjoys being outdoors more than in. As well as exercise and play (which I love) I also need A LOT of training to mentally satisfy me – I am fast to learn and would suit someone who has a keen interest in training, I have started clicker training and would excel with an owner who is keen to continue this and much more.

I could potentially live with another well-mannered dog and I would be best suited to live with adults due to my training needs.

I have a lot to offer but I will keep you busy, you will need time, patience and dedication to help me learn the skills I need to develop into a well-balanced adult. But what fun and adventures we could have. If you are looking for a bright young dog to do a lot with then please apply for me.

Thank you, must dash, there’s things to do! Milo x
