Hariot is very athletic and requires a daily exercise regimen providing her with lots of playtime. She loves to chase balls, run, and get lots of hugs and kisses! Hariot needs an experienced dog owner who is able to establish boundaries for behavior and consistently enforce these boundaries with positive reinforcement, which she responds to well. She belongs in a home where she is the only animal, although, over time, Hariot may be willing to accept another dog living with her. But the current recommendation is she lives as the only animal in the house. In addition, Hariot does not yet belong off-leash at the dog park or dog beach as she can become dog aggressive, but other dogs don't seem to bother her when she's on a leash.
As much as Hariot loves to be outside and play, she is a house dog and should not be kept outside unsupervised. Because of Hariot's high energy level, she needs lots of mental stimulation making her an easy dog to train. Hariot would do very well in obstacle courses and an interesting training routine, introducing her to a variety of new training techniques. Hariot does have an unreasonable attraction to plastic and toys, therefore, she needs one or two toys to play with at any one time. Hariot does not chase water and hasn't chewed up any hoses, as is the case with many Bulldogs.
If you are a strong-willed, experienced dog owner, who spends a lot of time outdoors, then Hariot may be the dog for you!
