Dawson's Profile

Hi, I’m Dawson!

The staff at the OHS call me a Performer! Performers love being at the centre of attention and are usually excited to meet all types of people, often introducing themselves! Performers need a high amount of exercise daily, and would love a daily hike, jog, bike ride, or long session of fetch every day. To work their minds, Performers usually love the excitement of food puzzles, frozen treats, training games, and hide-and-seek!

Performers need to be integrated into the family and are usually pretty fun to take out and about for family activities – they love being where the action is! After a good day of socializing and exercising, you’ll usually find Performers flopped down next to you to enjoy some quality sleep time. If you’re looking for an active, social companion, then you’ll have lots of fun with a Performer!
