Meet KELSEY - Paws Behind Bars Trained

KELSEY is a one-year-old female mixed breed (Australian Shepherd is probably a piece of her puzzle.). She weighs 50 lbs and is full grown. She came to us from a rural shelter where she was picked up as a stray. KELSEY has her fair share of puppy energy but is smart and responsive to basic commands.

We've started her on leash, crate, and house-training, but she's just so smart that we enrolled her in our Paws Behind Bars prison dog training program. We have started to take note of our dog's personalities as they age. (Because you can always learn!) Puppies are puppies, but once they get to the one year mark, they can often become bold & brassy teenagers. Kelsey is the perfect example; she would often use her "loud voice" when introduced to other dogs, presenting as dominant. What we learned is there's not all that behind the bark - she's bunking up with her inmate and a senior Dachshund, and she's scared to death of him. She's right at that critical time to learn her boundaries and obedience.

She'll need an active family with a fenced-in yard. Older children would be best as there is probably some degree of herding instinct in there. She's beautifully marked and always has that smile on her face. She'll probably do best as an only dog.
