    I am a lovable goofy guy and just a big ball of floof!

    Kodiak has adapted very well to our home during the time we have been fostering him. He uses the doggie door very well and lets himself in and out of our garage where he can escape the heat and cold as he needs. He is so happy to be interacting with us and bounds across the yard when we get home. He plays and interacts well with dogs that match his energy and recently attended the Calgary Comic Expo where he was a real show stopper. He gets along well with children and is open to hugs and pats of all kinds.

    He is still working on his loose leash walking and is more of an explorer he would do well in a home with a lot of outdoor space where he can roam and play with the family. He does not nuisance bark nor does he bark at other dogs. Having said that as a Pyrenees he is prone to night barking if he is left outside in the yard while he protects the house. We have found that keeping him inside the garage in the evening in his dog area stops this barking completely.

    He is still quite restless inside the home and we are continuing to work on this, however given his breed and size he really prefers to be outside. He is still very spunky for a older guy and is quite comical. He is also tolerant of grooming which with a big floofy coat like his is a really good thing. He rides well in the car and we have been able to get him to use a ramp to get in and out of the vehicle.
