Welcome! Tell us about your dog.

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.

What is your favorite activity to do with your dog?

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.

Have you and your dog ran together before? If so, who is faster?

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.

How many miles a week do you run?

Me: 9-12. Bernie: 3-5

Are you a beginnger, advanced, or competitive runner?

We'll say intermediate (between beginner and advanced).

Introduction

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!
