Walking on a leash I am currently learning about being on a leash and will have this down in no time!
Crate training-please note that we teach crating as a 'safe happy personal space' where the IG can rest/sleep when confinement is necessary. Crates should NEVER be used as a punishment or 'time out' space. I do just fine being in my crate for reasonable amounts of time.
Italian Greyhounds are known for housebreaking issues and most will have occasional accidents. Many come to us as surrenders due to excessive potty accidents indoors. This is typically the result of poor potty routines within the previous home so we do typically get them on track fairly quickly. As an IG parent you must be willing to commit to a structured and reasonable routine to keep your iggy from having excessive indoor accidents. My house-training Status is: Occasional accidents
We are working on it!
I know how to use designated potty pads indoors
A little more about me and my personality: Hi! I’m Jameson. I am a little shy but very sweet. I have a spunky streak...if someone wants play with me, I’m ready! I am still learning how to be a regular dog after spending time in a hoarding situation, but I am coming along beautifully. I interact well with my two big dog foster sisters. I like to steal their bones and hoard them. Hee hee! I have kitty foster siblings too. I’m more shy with them than with the big dogs! My foster mom thinks I would do especially well with another dog my size to play with. I like attention and being near my foster family. Even if I don’t spend a lot of time in their laps yet, my foster mom can tell I want to. I’m ready to find my forever family and settle into a loving and happy life.
