“My best friends have 4 paws”

Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a life-long Bay Area resident, and dog lover. I live in San Jose with my dog (and best friend) Boomer. I have many years of dog care under my belt, from puppy to senior, including special needs dogs. I have experience with many breeds, and know how to handle high-energy dogs. I love meeting new dogs and getting to know their charming (and often hilarious) personalities. Our dogs aren't pets, they are family, and you can count on me to treat them that way.
