I have had a house full of animals ever since I was a little boy. I have personally taken care of 5 of my own dogs. This includes the bare essentials of walking, playing, feeding, bathing and maintaining the happiness of my dogs. I have a passion for dogs in particular because they are such a care free species. They will show you how happy they are or they can show you that something is wrong.

I have been around animals all my live. Growing up in a small flat in Switzerland I had guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, birds and fish. Once I moved to South Africa and was living in a house with a big yard I was able to have dogs and cats. When we first moved to California we lived in apartments and did not have pets. I used to spent time with my friends dogs or looked after cats when the owners were away. Once we moved into a house we adopted a border collie who was scared of everything. I took him to obedience training and later became a dog trainer through Animal Behavior College to get a better understanding about dog behaviors. I took years and lots of patience to get my border collie to interact with other dogs and people. Now he loves his walks and when I take him for runs or walks I often take my neighbor’s dog with me.
