The young lad called Scutch came to us from his animal shelter up the coast because he wasn't suitable for the average Dobie home. He's mouthy, apparently never having been taught that play behavior doesn't include putting his mouth on his handler's or owner's hand or arm. We think he's a quick learner though; he was shown in a short video going through the drill in an agility course. Though Scutch is small for a male Dobie, he's probably through growing and is probably around a year old. His animal shelter also thought he was too dog-reactive on leash to be trusted to approach another dog, but it appears more likely that he just never learned how to play. We immediately kenneled him with two other dogs (one male and one female), and there was no disagreement between them. Scutch is a dog that will require stimulation and exercise, ideally with a jogger or someone hoping to finish a dog in agility work; minimally with someone that has plenty of enclosed space for him to run in.
