*Woof!* I'm Joshua and I just said 'Hello!' in dog speak. My dog has been teaching me his native tongue when he's not too busy chasing his tail. He also has been training me how to fetch his favorite treats, rub his belly the way he likes, and where to take him for exercise to get in some good paw stretches. I've been told I'm a good human and often get wet nose kisses in recognition of a job well done. Dogs are simply amazing and I absolutely love them. I appreciate dogs of all sizes and breeds, but big playful pups are my favorite. When caring for your dog, you can rest assured that your fur baby is in the good hands of a trustworthy human who is as loving to your four-legged friend as you are. Your pup is always priority #1!

I have grown up around all kinds of animals especially dogs both big and small. I currently love and care for a sweet little chihuahua/doxen mix and hope to adopt a larger dog as well. I am very interested in using canine behavior and body language to understand how they feel so I provide the best care possible.
