Kathleen Harrop...anyone familiar with this climbing rose

I am looking for something that is climbing that is "non-toxic" to dogs. That can handle semi shade. I am thinking this fits the bill. Would love for it to fill the trellis...

What is the care for such a climbing rose? I have ground cover roses...that are easy. Wasn't sure if these took more care to keep happy.

"Kathleen Harrop
Introduced in 1919, Kathleen Harrop is a sport of "Zephirine Drouhin" Bourbon rose. Noted for being more shade-tolerant than many rose plants, it is hardy to USDA Zone 5. Kathleen Harrop blooms with pink, semi-double blossoms continuously throughout the season, and grows to be approximately 10 feet in height."

Though...I do like those miniature roses...'Jeanne La Joie' (Rosa) is what this one was called. Though thorns and training it up the trellis has me a bit timid.

Of these two...which would you feel the best choice? For someone not super knowledgable of roses...
