Lenka is happy, goofy, and eager to please – she just wants to be where you are, always! She is very trainable and loves to work but is also very flexible and enjoys both being active and lazy days. If she were a human, Lenka would work in customer service, always willing to go the extra mile for those who need her.
Lenka is always up for receiving affection and isn’t shy about asking it. She is friendly with strangers and other dogs. Lenka has shown high prey drive towards cats and will need a home without them. She rides well in the car, has behaved perfectly at the veterinarian’s office, and is fully crate trained. Lenka is nervous around loud noises such as fireworks and louder storms. She has mastered basic obedience and is working on more advanced commands. Lenka still needs reminding to limit jumping up when excited. She is very motivated by affection and praise and requires very little correction.
Lenka would do best in a home that had plenty of opportunities for exercise, including daily walks. She may integrate with another dog well but is mostly focused on her handler and others in her home. Lenka would thrive in a calmer household as she tends to be amped up by lots of excitement and activity. She is a quick learner, and might do well in competitive obedience, agility, or other organized activity. Lenka can’t wait to spend every day by her person’s side – give her a chance to show you what she’s made of!
