Hello, I'm Stephen! I've been an avid dog lover since the moment I was born. Since then I've been sitting, boarding, and walking all the dogs that my friends have. I have experience from Australian Shepherds to little Rat Terriers, and adore all dogs of all shapes and sizes. It's been exciting getting to know all the different personalities these little guys can bring. I believe in having fun with puppers, but also demonstrating discipline with much love.

Ignore my video, took that while I lived in LA for awhile. So I’m a pup parent with dog experience. I grew up around big dogs. As a kid, I was always told to respect dogs and treat them like children. At the moment I have two dogs of my own that are super social with other dogs and people. When we have pups over, we go on two walks a day and do lots of play time. When I do wag! Walks, I make sure to poop them out as much as possible.

The park also includes picnic tables and restrooms for the comfort of the human visitors. The park is spacious and has plenty of lush grass to roll around in. There are trees all over the park that provide shade for the hot summer days. Don't fur-get to bring water and waste bags!
