I've been around dogs all of my life, training two of my own personal dogs. Previously, I have worked with various animals so I have extensive knowledge on other pets you may have in your household! I work at a dog daycare regularly practicing dog training, boarding, and proper leash walking. I worked to be trained as an entry level groomer where I was given the opportunity to learn about skin infections/diseases that commonly appear on many dogs to ensure your pup is happy & safe at all times!
