Human intro: My name is Molly! I work from home and enjoy doing trick training with Oona in my free time.
Dog's name: Oona
Age: 16 mo
Breed / size: Husky/bulldog/heeler mix — about 40lbs.
What brings you here? Looking for training buddies or play buddies? Both! Play would be fun
General location? I live in NE Portland and have a secure fenced-in backyard!
Availability? Weekends would be best.
What's your dog's social experience? She used to go to a day camp with a few other dogs but stopped just before this summer because of our travel schedule.
(For training) What kind of training are you looking to do together?
What's your dog's "play style"? Slappy, chase-me, wrastle-y, let's runnnnn!
What kind of dogs does your dog tend to like? She has played with a Malinois puppy, Aussie, giant Labradoodle, and a similar-sized husky mix in the past.
What kind of dogs does your dog not tend to like? Terriers.
How often does your dog play with other dogs? Not at all right now and I'd like to fix that!
Does your dog have any history of aggression? (It's okay if you don't know what qualifies as aggression or not. Answer as best you can.) She can have some barrier reactivity (fences/leashes)
What kind of management or training do you want to do during play? (Hint: practice attention/recalling away from other dogs) Recall out of play
Do you have a yard, or are you hoping to meet with someone who has a yard? I come with a yard!
Anything else? I am hoping to find some playmates but am also open to going on leash walks together or tricks if your dog likes that too. :)
Is she averse to all terriers, like pit mixes? Or just smaller ones, like Yorkies or Jack Russells?
Sally is the same size as Oona and seems to have a similar play style! And we have also been working on better recall during play...
