I got real lucky the first time around, my trainer had all of these traits. When I first met her I liked her immediately. She was a big help with my golden after he was attacked when he was a puppy. She is a Rott person and her Rott's come with her to class, so after my boy got attacked by a Rott, he immediately socialized with one in class. She encouraged me to go out there and get the dogs involved in stuff. As I branched out I went to different trainers and they all were in the same circle and knew each other. She had some health issues with her dogs and she talked to me about it. She cried with me when my mom died. Yes she became my friend and all of my dogs adore her....that was a big plus. We used to joke that the GSD liked her like she was family....and to this day the GSD is excited to see her.
