I am a calm and caring individual that has always enjoyed being around dogs. Currently I own a Siberian Husky who is very well socialised with all breeds of dogs due to us spending most of our time at the park or in the woods off lead. She is loved by all that meet her and it is a lovely thing to see her playing and learning with her friends.
I believe you train a dog by understanding its breed and rewarding good behavior. It also helps if they are engaged and worn out after a long walk.
We have a large garden and a good home, we live near Becketts park, Kirkstall Abby, Meanwood Park and the Hollies, depending on the dogs abilities we can take a mooch around the woods 5 mins away or take a walk right up to Golden acre park (around 10 miles round trip)
I try to avoid Headingley center and walking along the roads as much as possible.
