A Docklands duo

By Sarah Bartlett

Local resident David finds Docklands to be the perfect location for pet dogs.

Eighteen-month-old border collie Cori and 11-month-old Doberman Islay both live with David in a Docklands apartment building. Islay lives mainly on the balcony and Cori is based inside.

“Docklands, I find is a very dog-friendly area; there are a lot of dog parks studded around the area,” David said.

David takes Cori and Islay for walks everyday and on some mornings he takes them with him on a grocery shop run and picks up treats for them!

While similar in age, Islay and Cori have different personalities.

“Cori is crazy energetic, and is very ball- or toy-driven. When presented with any form of Frisbee, toy, or ball, she will just run forever,” David said.

David described Islay as a more playful type.

“She’s not as ball-driven, but she is definitely kind of wrestle-driven. She likes to jump on other dogs and play with them and chase them around,” David said.

Islay has been bred more as a security dog, and David said that he is trying to train that out of her.

“She is very protective, and if strangers that she doesn’t feel are safe come nearby than she might bark at them,”

David said that the training process for Islay was going well so far.
