ONSLOW WENT TO THE PARK WITH CLÍONA B. ON JANUARY 27th 2018. THIS IS WHAT CLÍ SAID ABOUT ONSLOW:
Onslow is a gorgeous affectionate boy who needs a lot of work with other breeds that enter his space. His charming eyes and love of humans would melt your heart and in an ideal world, where his personal space was his and his alone, life would be easier for Onslow.
However we live in a busy fast moving world in which Onslow must be a part. We met quite a few dogs and I quickly learned that if the other dog was old or slow moving Onslow ignored it, which he did with a Basset Hound having a sniff, an older mixed breed walking at a slow pace and a Jack Russell sitting by a table. However anything at a normal or fast pace including a fluffy puppy and a poodle on a brisk walk, Onslow had no kind words for and required a firm hand.
In the car he is a great traveller, you would hardly know he was there and if there were no other fast moving objects around he walked well on a short lead.
Onslow needs more trips out into the world so he can be socialized with patience and learn that we can all share a footpath comfortably.
ONSLOW WENT TO THE PARK WITH CLÍONA B. ON DECEMBER 2nd 2017. THIS IS WHAT CLÍ SAID ABOUT ONSLOW:
‘Onslow is very affectionate towards people, but doesn’t like other dogs in his space. After a little assistance getting in the car he rested his head like he was sleeping, but woke and looked out the window as the car was parking. He is an extremely affectionate boy that likes to lean on you even while he is walking and offers his head close to your hand so can stroke him.
He clearly prefers humans to dogs and will give an obvious stay away warning to another dog if they get too close or enter what Onslow thinks is his own space. For this reason he needs a competent owner who will be rewarded with affection and loveable stares.’
