What should the next family should know about Riley: This is a high drive breed. The adoption candidate for Riley must have experience with this breed or other Shepard breeds please. Riley is driven more by play (especially a ball) than food and very, very high for darting animals such as squirrels, rabbits, cats. The best method of control for daily walks is an e'collar because of this extremely high drive. On lease, you have to be in command at all times. Just putting the collar on changes Rileys initiative. Riley does know some German commands. Riley excels at day care with other dogs and has no issue there. Please contact me for interview for candidacy for this beautiful animal.
