Copper is the nicest puppy I have ever encountered. He has not a mean bone in his body and I honestly feel like he came pre-trained. He does not bark or growl and thinks everybody is just as nice and wants to play. He is very good at staying with us when hiking. He loves water but still needs to learn to swim when the weather permits. Copper is very polite when he approaches other dogs. He has a method of sitting, observing, waiting and then slowing walking over to smell and then when that is over with it's full on play sessions. He is somewhat of a 'chicken'. He never goes ahead in places he's never been or when he hears something strange. He loves giving kisses and is a sucker for treats.
