Like the handcrafted premium Tequila, Patron will spice up your life and share many adventures with you.  Patron is a happy, exuberant pup that enjoys exploring the yard and being with his human.  He is smart, learns quickly and is quite the social boy.  He is currently in Board and Train where he is learning good manners and ways to control is adolescent personality. 

From his trainer, Patron is a medium to high energy dog.  He needs plenty of physical exercise and mental enrichment and stimulation.  He loves to play tug-of-war and will play fetch.  He is a strong and enthusiastic tugger.  Patron will play games of chase, wrestle and tug with other dogs.  He is currently working on jumping, proper greeting, recall, waiting at doorways, relaxing on a mat and getting into his harness.  Patron is a smart pup and is doing well with his training.  You may watch a recall training video of Patron here.

Ideal Home:  Patron will do best with a relatively experienced family who is willing and able to safely handle a strong dog and provide ample exercise.  He’d be great with an adverturesome single person or couple who enjoy walks, hikes, trips or just playing in a big backyard.  You’ll need a sense of humor as we suspect he’ll create some antics so you’ll need to take them in stride.  In return, Patron will be your lifelong companion and help you enjoy life to the max.  Another young dog will likely be fine but he’s too much for senior, sedate dogs or small lap pups.

If you are interested in spicing up your life, Patron may be your boy.  Please reach out to your matchmaker or submit an application to learn more.
