Jake's favorite place is by your side, or at least in the same room you are in. He loves cuddles and will work for affection (or treats!). He adapts well to change and picks up on household rules pretty quickly. He loves to chew, but keeps his interests to appropriate things to chew. His favorite is beef cheek rolls! He loves playing tug or with other dogs in the household. He isn’t so great with fetch, but he is getting there. He doesn't want to relinquish the toy, but will let you take it from him. Jake is good with cats that are indifferent or good with dogs. If the cat swats any time he gets in proximity, Jake will bark at the cat until redirected. He has not been around children, but we anticipate his morning puppy energy might knock a child down. Jake loves everyone and has offered every person he has met so far, a Rottie lean. He is learning that his choices have consequences. The current one he is working through is coming out of the crate and not jumping up beside you for attention. He is understanding that the best way to receive attention isn't the high excited jumping, but instead, a sit. Jake still doesn't know what to do with his "first thing in the morning" puppy energy though, so the sit is usually pretty wiggly. He has less energy than we are used to in a 1-year-old Rottie, possibly because of being a Parvo survivor, but that just means that it is easier to satisfy his exercise needs. 


A Typical Day in the Life of Jake:

The alarm goes off. Jake waits a few minutes to see if his foster mom as actually going to wake up. If she doesn’t, he whines in the crate for about 10 minutes. He sits before the crate door is opened. He is still working on duration with an open crate door and release, so the release is pretty quickl. Excitement! Jumping up next to foster mom, then remembering his manners and sitting. He gets a quick pet before going outside. Next up he has about 30 minutes of play outside and potty time. He goes back in and has about 15 - 30 minutes of cuddle time. Next, he sits and waits patiently for breakfast which is 1.5 - 2c of food in his crate. After breakfast he usually takes a 2-3 hour nap in whichever room foster mom is working in. Some days, Jake goes on a 2-3 mile walk in the woods. Others he goes to class. On these days he is generally pretty chill the rest of the day. If he doesn't exercise his mind or body, he usually has about 2 more sessions of zoomies and/or wanting to play a day. Dinner is another 1.5 - 2c. After dinner, he wants to cuddle up with you on the couch or in bed and watch TV. His last bout of play is usually around 9:00pm. After that, he is usually asleep for the night. When humans are ready for bed, throw a few treats into the crate and Jake will kennel up for night, without a cue.
