One year old Max is ready to find his forever home!  He has been working with a trainer at Kamp, learning good manners and getting tons of exercise!

Max is high energy and must have consistent daily exercise.  He must have a fenced yard – he needs the opportunity to run and play labrador retrieverHe would not do well crated all day – he needs breaks throughout the day and a chance to run around and get rid of that puppy energy.  He loves everyone he meets, but is still working on keeping all 4 paws on the floor and remembering that hands are not a chew toy so he would do better with older labrador retrieverHe would love a canine companion but not a feline.  His new furry buddy needs to match his energy level, as he plays hard and doesn’t tire easily.

Max is looking forward to meeting his forever family.

Max is still learning lots of new things at Kamp and having a blast playing with all of his doggie friends.  Max finally figured out how to play fetch, almost.  LOL

Max loves playing with other dogs! He loves to run and explore.  The trainer has been trying him out with a variety of breeds and sizes. Black Labrador Retriever Black Labrador Retriever Black Labrador Retriever Black Labrador Retriever Black Labrador RetrieverHe is pretty high energy and gets so excited that it seems like he has unlimited energy.  He would be a great partner to another high energy dog.  They would do a good job wearing each other out.

With all this rain, we have discovered that Max is very good about being hosed off and towel dried.

The trainer started clicker training with Max, starting with him to give her good eye contact.  He figured it out pretty quickly!
