My dog is not just my dog, he’s my little brother and best friend. I’ve had three dogs over the course of my life, each has had a different personality and I have loved each differently. The point is, I know how to work with many different breeds and dog personalities. I would love the opportunity to walk or run with your dog during the day. I’m an active person who walks and bikes to work every day and am excited for the opportunity to meet your fluffy friend.
