“Walking your best friend is an honor.”

I am an outgoing energetic dog lover looking to hang out with other pups whenever I can get the chance to.I like being outdoors whenever I can so the idea of being able to walk dogs outside is exciting to me. Dogs are humans finest companion and they always make everything better. I have always had many different animals growing up and I feel like they allow me to express myself sometimes in a different way then you can with humans.
