“Everything I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!
