Hi my name is Erin Hinton and I have had dogs all my life. I currently have 2 lab and golden mixes. I have been dog sitting and walking for the past 8 years. For the last 4 years I have also trained dogs as well. Working with dogs and just being around them makes me happy and feel safe. Dogs bring so much joy to a person I couldn't imagine not being around them. As an owner I do know how important it is to have a piece of mind when you are asking someone to work or walk your dog. That is the most important thing ever to know your dog is in good hands.
