CLICKER training has helped shy Staffie Herbie to feel more confident.

Trainer Tasha has been working with the six-year-old male at Dogs Trust Shoreham.

“He is very intelligent and loves to learn new tricks,” added the charity. “Herbie loves his food, so his trainer has used food as a reward for all his training.”

Herbie is looking for a local, quiet, adult home with no visiting children and he needs a garden he can enjoy playing in.

Dogs Trust said: “Herbie likes to play with other dogs and would be happy to share his new home with the right one. We don’t know what he is like with cats or small furries, but we would be happy to test.

“Although he will take a little longer to get to know his new owners, he is very affectionate and fun to be with once he trusts you.”

Herbie loves to play with tennis balls and enjoys a game of fetch, as well as swimming in the summer, and is great at agility.

“He is a good boy at walking nicely on the lead, being left and going for a drive in the car,” said the charity.

New owners would need to be prepared to work with the staff while getting to know Herbie.
