During the night, Canyon will open his dog proof latch on his pen, go to his friend's pens and proceed to open the latches on their gates so he can hang out with them.
Canyon has also been caught opening the front door of our home with his paws to let himself in. :)
Canyon is also very respectful, always doing what is asked of him over what he prefers. He will drop anything to listen or be by your side.
Canyons intelligence has made it to where he did not need formal training, he watches your gestures, tilts his head, listens to your voice, seems to know what your asking and does it! Canyon is an easy going, laid back type, he takes everything in stride. If another dog is bothering him, or a female is trying to dominate him, he just ignores it and goes about his day. Its as if he's a mature human, he just lets the female think she is the boss, all the while knowing he's the top dog. If the other dog annoys him enough, which takes quite a bit, he will lay them down on the ground, not hurting them, just letting them know that's enough and they need to straighten up!
Canyon is absolutely a true family dog with an intense passion for children!
Canyon is amazing with children, he will wrap his arms around their neck, holding them with his paws and giving kisses. If you are looking to have a loyal dog to follow your children around, keep an eye on them, climb trees with them, wrestle with them.. then Canyon is that and so much more. He is beautiful with children, loving to the core. He wants to be right there with them, watching out for them and will do anything to make them happy. He protects and watches over our children as if they were his.
