Alectra is a very smart dog, although we have not been able to train her to not chase the cats. We have worked really hard to get her to not jump up on people, but she still does occasionally in her excitement, so no small children would be best.
She is crate trained and sleeps in it all night and will willingly go into her kennel. She knows the command sit, off, and getting pretty good with Place, and Leave it. She would do great with someone that is consistent, and unfortunately there are other members in our home that are not consistent with her. She lives for having a job! Because she is a hound and follows her nose, she isn’t the best on a leash. We haven’t started working on loose leash walking yet, but she is no longer afraid to go on walks.
She had parvo as a puppy and was a bit under socialized. She has been attending daycare 3x a week and does really well with people and other dogs now. They all love her. She is also affectionate, which has made the decision to rehome her that much more difficult. She will curl up next to you on the sofa and at times forgets she is getting too big to be a lap dog.
