Marley is available and  still looking for his furever family.  He is good with dogs, cats, and kids.  He would do best in a single family home with a fenced yard for daily exercise and playtime. black labrador retrieverMarley is a sweet and affectionate dog, who loves people and children. His previous owner had two young girls that he was very good with. They also had a cat and an older dog that he was fine with. He could live with or without another resident dog. He likes other dogs as long as they are not overly energetic, and jumping on him labrador retriever black labrador retriever black labrador retriever black labrador retriever black labrador retrieverHis leash skills are very good on either a front clip harness or gentle leader. You can walk him on a flat collar as well but he will he’ll pull a little bit more. He can be a little uncertain when meeting new people or new dogs, but he warms up quickly. He does get excited when he sees other dogs and may pull or bark, but he is very easily redirected with treats. His trainer has been working a lot on walking him around other dogs and people, and letting him meet them when he uses his good doggie manners.  He’s very smart and willing and loves to please.  His trainer said she’d love to adopt him if she had room in her home for one more!black labrador retrieverMarley is also athletic and could do any sport that someone might want to do. He does the agility obstacles. He is great in the car and is more than willing to jump in anyone’s car if he sees the door open!  Marley does still jump a little bit when he’s excited to see his people and wants to hug them!

Marley is still looking for his forever home. He’s doing great at Kamp and is a staff favorite, of course! He will need a family committed to working with him to continue his training and to reinforce it daily. He will also need daily exercise. Since he is still working on his leash skills, he would do best with a fenced yard. He loves to run and play fetch, or keep away if you’re game!  Here is a video of Marley working on his leash skills today.

Marley is doing fantastic meeting and playing with dogs off leash while at Kamp. He enjoys hanging out with other dogs, both big and labrador retriever black labrador retriever

He got to have a play date with Moose, a chocolate lab puppy!

Marley loves his people, but may take a few minutes to warm up to new people. However, once he knows you, he loves affection. He is happiest touching his people, even if it’s just a paw or his head on your lap. He’s very affectionate. He is very food motivated, he’s a lab after all, so training with him goes very well. He will repay you with his loyalty and maybe even a few licks!black labrador retriever
