Bernie is a sweet, loving, hilarious 2-yo Saint Bernard mix. He has a lot of energy, but knows when to settle down and be a 80lbs lap dog. He's a rescue dog and we've spent a lot of time and energy working on obedience and leash skills. I've had him about 5 months and we've come a long way since our first walk (he slipped out of his collar and ran away to chase a squirrel...). Now we go on at least 2 walks a day and many day excursions on weekends. He's getting the hang of it.
We love to go hiking. I'm looking forward to moving so that we can hike in actual mountains vs. the flat or moderately hilly trails of MN.
We have. Short distance, his long legs definitely outrun mine. Long distance (more than 1 mile?) I outrun him, but I think it's because he just wants to stop and sniff for awhile.
Me: 9-12. Bernie: 3-5
We'll say intermediate (between beginner and advanced).
Hello! My name is Ashley and I'm moving to Santa Monica in October from Minneapolis, MN. I'm very much looking forward to skipping the Minnesota winters. :) I'm new to the area and looking for activities both Bernie and I will enjoy!
