Gunner has protective instincts of the heeler breed. He is obedience trained and also was trained to shed hunt for antlers and loves it. He is housebroken and crate trained. He is good on leash. He loves his balls and toys. He is good with other dogs. Because of his protective nature we do not recommend him to a family with young children. If he goes to a family they need to all be involved in his care.
