Kanga – Mixed breed
Breed: Mixed Breed
More information about this dog
Kanga aged approximately 6 years of age is a rescue dog coming all the way from Spain. She is mixed breed dog but its hard to tell how many breeds, a real Heinz 57. She is an extremely inquisitive dog with bundles of energy.
She loves to explore new places and shows a strong desire to understand and learn which makes her a very trainable dog. She has been compared to a teddy bear & a fox! She is a very affectionate dog, loving human affection. She has gone from a nervous rescue to a confident girl who enjoys agility, fly-ball & regular clicker training sessions. Being such an unusual looking dog, she attracts a lot of attention.
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
Kanga is intelligent & picks up new commands very quickly as a result of her inquisitive nature & her need to focus her mind. She can get frustrated when she doesn’t understand something so it is important to take small steps & reward the small behaviours which motivate her to do well; which is a ball & treats.
Kanga can be shy and aloof to start with, but she quickly warms her environment and people. Her energy and curiosity get the better of her and make her want to work. She is really good with children & fine with other dogs. She is fine with most men once she has had a good sniff, but can be wary at first. In all, she is a well-socialised dog that is very gentle & affectionate. Kanga is used to being told what to do by a number of different people, which means that she works well both with her owner & with others who give her commands, for example, an actor.
Touch (to a target stick)

She is an ideal dog for most briefs according to her level of skill.
