My name is Tammy and my first dog experience was at 10 when I was able to spend time at a neighbor's who had a German Shepherd named Lucy. We spent hours in the yard playing. Within a few years my family got 2 dogs of our own, Swampy and Butch, which I took care of starting when I was age 12. I got my own dogs once I left my parents home. 2 Akitas that both lived until age 15. At this point in my life I would like to give back the love dogs give and help others with their dogs. I have experience raising dogs from puppyhood to seniors. I am college educated and also work as a personal trainer teaching fitness classes and boot camps. I love the outdoors and staying fit. I am prepared to give your dog the best care possible at whatever fitness level you desire.
