Bazooka is a 1 1/2 year old black lab mix. When Bazooka arrived he had a bit of food aggression and we decided to work with him before putting him up for adoption. When feeding Bazooka we made sure to handle his food directly with our hands to get our scent on it. Then while he ate we stayed by his kennel and gave him lots of positive enforcement. He began to leave his food while eating and would come to the front of his kennel for affection, then return to eating. He has made wonderful strides but will probably need this type of approach with a new family to reinforce his good behavior. He is very exuberant and fun loving, has bundles of energy and enjoys being a good dog. Cats are a definite NO for Bazooka. Other dogs are a maybe, he seems to ignore most of them but will engage if provoked. We would recommend him as an only pet with older children. Bazooka will be ready for adoption on 2/18/20.
