Emmett is the James Bond of dogs – handsome, calm, loyal, with an athletic disposition and a dry sense of humor. He will steal your heart and keep you entertained and finds joy in just being his family’s companion.
Sweet, shy, calm, and eager to please, Emmett is very quiet and enjoys relaxing most of the day. He ignores strangers when outside of his home and is friendly to human visitors to his home and yard. Emmett is a bit unpredictable with other dogs, however. He has shown some reactivity toward unknown dogs when the are reactive towards him and will need a stronger handler who can enforce boundaries and ensure that encounters with dogs are monitored and controlled. Emmett has high prey drive, and would do best in a home without children, small animals such as cats or small dogs, and more dominant large dogs. He rides well in the car, has done well at the veterinarian’s office, and isn’t bothered by loud noises. Emmett has mastered basic obedience, is fully crate trained, and is managed well with firm and clear correction.
Emmett’s ideal home would be a quiet one with a set routine and plenty of opportunities for walks and naps. He may do well in a casual sport such as agility or dock diving, but usually prefers to relax in his dog bed or be with his family. Emmett would do best in a home without other dogs or with just one other neutral large dog. This charismatic boy loves attention and can’t wait to shower you with love!
