Timber Yellow Labrador Retriever Male, 2 Years Old
August 3, 2018
He is very smart as you can see from the video I shared after just a few days here. To further his skills, he has been working with a trainer this week @ Philly Unleashed on various items including impulse control so an adoptive family can manage him that much easier but he will need an active family and someone interested in continuing his training to keep his brain tired even if it is something fun like agility. Nicole @ Philly Unleashed is also offering a free round of group classes at her Philly location for an adoptive family to continue his training. They all love him and want to see him succeed. His training can be followed on Instagram @phillyunleashed
Timber comes to the office with me and is well behaved and thankfully never barks. As with any other lab I have brought in, my staff is trained by them to hide their food, raise wastebaskets at their cube and to put down the toilet seat lids !! He has also donned the name George Costanza since he likes to sleep under my desk:-) We had to stop at Dunkin Donuts to get a gift card for an employee since Timber owed her two bagels with cream cheese – tisk tisk Timber.
Happy Friday !!

Timber has now been with us for a few days and we are enjoying his company while learning all about him!
He is very smart and has learned a few commands already such as “sit” , “down” and “kennel” and we are working on “stay” as he gets ready to eat his meals. We have found that with (3) half hr walks throughout the day allows him to settle very nicely inside the home – he will lie on his bed to rest, grab a toy/bone here and there but that is the extent of it. Timber LOVES to go for a walk and when he sees other dogs he gets super- excited and pulls towards them with a crazy greeting style off-putting to other dogs so we are currently working on curbing that with a distraction using the “magical” liverwurst (yuck!). Timber acts as of nothing in the world exists around him when he is near it and it is working wonders already. Aside from that, he is your typical young lab that needs a routine/structure, attention and diligence when it comes to leaving things out like food! Here he is taking a stroll with his foster brother, Buddy and a photo of him at the office taking a nap which is impressive considering the flurry of people & activity around him !

He is a 2 year old male that is 80 lbs of awesomeness! Timber arrived at ACCT Philly as a stray whose owner did not come back to claim him. He came into foster care Saturday so we decided to take him to Nockamixon State Park for a fun-filled day that consisted of a long 4 mile walk along the trails while meeting lots of people and other dogs, dipping his toes in the water (he was just neutered so he could not go all the way in), some clicker training and some down time enjoying his marrow bone. Timber was very good in the car for the long ride home and slept almost all of the way but we did learn that if he is in the car with you there is no eating allowed because he will bark until you share with him. So if you want a peaceful drive with Timber ….eat before you leave the house!
Here are some photos/video of our day together. We are excited to spend more time with him to learn what home will fit him best. Stay tuned!
