More about Axel

Axel is a confident setter cross who is friendly and sociable with everyone he meets. He is a bouncy, active dog who will have a lot of potential in the right home.

During his stay with us we have been practising his basic training and learning how to keep his paws on the floor as he gets very over excited when he meets people and does jump up. This will need to be continued in his new home to ensure he learns to greet visitors in an appropriate manner. He will also need to be taught recall, particularly around wildlife as he does have a strong desire to chase. Owners should bear in mind that even with training, his recall may never be fully reliable in areas where there is lots of wildlife.

He would be great for owners who have experience with similar high energy breeds as he is strong on lead so will need someone capable of managing him. They should also be willing to commit to his training and exercise needs including house training. He would likely benefit from agility classes or other from of physical training that can keep his brain busy at the same time! For committed owners he will make a very rewarding companion.

If you think Axel could be the dog for you please contact our Brands Hatch site on 01474875106 or email bbh.rehomers@battersea.org.uk.
