Pupdate 1: Bono wakes me up around 6 am and asks for permission to hop onto the bed. Expect friendly kisses if you do not get up right away! We'll go for a quick walk after he's fed, and then i'm off to work. While i'm away, Bono has full reign of the house, and sometimes sleeps in his crate. In the evenings, we're either out on a run or playing frisbee. If I'm home in the afternoon, he is usually hanging out in the fenced yard. He likes to sun himself on the deck! Bono is good with humans and children, even strangers. My bath was being remodeled and there were no issues between Bono and the contractors that came by. He'll try to play but will give up quickly once he understands it isn't play time.
Bono is a high energy dog that needs a lot of exercise. He loves his frisbee and that seems to be the most efficient way to tire him out. On walks, a prong collar is recommended as he will react to other dogs. That said, he is generally good on a leash and stays close. Bono is reactive towards other dogs and cats. A slow and structured introduction to other dogs is needed. He's great alone and does not suffer from separation anxiety. No incessant barking, chewing, or other destructive behavior. Chew toys and bones help. I find Bono to be a very empathetic dog and he reacts to emotional cues. Once, I stubbed and hurt my toe and he came right over to comfort me. He's also very trainable and has great recall.
