“There's nothing like a dog's love!”

I love all animals but dogs have a special place in my heart. I’ve been around dogs since I was 5. I have more experience with high energy dogs. I don’t have any current certifications but I want to get my dog first aid and cpr certification soon. I currently have a dog, he is a miniature pinscher chihuahua mix and has more energy than most small dogs. I have had him since he was 2 months old and trained him myself. I am not available for dog sittings that require an overnight stay.
