Available Dogs - Clancy

Enjoying a walk

Hi, I’m Clancy! I am a five year old Goldendoodle and as handsome as they come. My favorite activities are smiling and wagging my tail. I enjoy a good walk and a short play session with my toy. 

I love, love, love humans – big and small! I love humans so much that I do not want to share you with another dog. I need to be your one and only dog. While on walks, I do a good job checking in with you when other dogs are around. I have only acted out when we cross paths with other dog-reactive dogs. 

I am very affection driven. Since working with a trainer, I am doing a better job of listening on first command. I have learned that the fastest way to get what I want (your attention and affection) is to have good manners. I am crate and leash trained and will walk by your side or slightly behind you. I know my commands but will need a confident owner that can enforce the rules. I don't mind my crate and go right in when asked. 

I have a delightfully curly coat and am told I resemble a fluffy teddy bear. These beautiful locks don’t come cheap though - I require visits to the beauty salon for grooming every 8 – 12 weeks. I do shed a little bit but the degree of shedding is way less than other breeds.

I’m a pretty amazing boy. If you don’t have another dog and are looking for a best friend that will cheer you up every day then I am definitely the dog for you!
