Friendly and Fun Student For Hire
Dogs are drawn to me: I can't help it! I walk in the park, I walk by the ocean, and dogs large and small fall in my lap and beg for hugs. Can I help loving them back?
I've taken care of large dogs since I was seven years old. I attended puppy and adult dog training with the family dog at 8 years old. I got my own dog, an 80-pound Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue ...
What Ariadne would like to know about your dog
I'm comfortable with any breed. I grew up around a large Golden Retriever and huge Rhodesian Ridgeback, and I spent a lot of time playing with the Bernese Mountain Dog next door. I'm fine with small dogs too, but larger dogs are my preference.
I'd like to know if your dog has ever bitten anyone or been aggressive, of course. We can probably work around it if they have, but if the dog has bitten a human and caused serious injury, that's another story altogether.
I'm fine with Pit Bulls, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and all the other dogs that get bad reputations. Some of my favorite dogs have been German Shepherds, and one notable wolf-dog.
I'd like to know what training your dog has and what you're comfortable with me asking them to do. It's fine if your dog doesn't know 'sit' or 'stay', but I want to know before I ask them to do these things!
