“Dog parent of 4 eager to help other dog parents!!”

I have lived with dogs all my life, starting with my family's old golden retriever Bailey, who we got when I was 7. I currently have 4 dogs of my own, my parents have 2 dogs, and my brother has 1 dog. I have taken care of all these animals, plus friend's pets throughout the years. I am familiar with large dogs, small dogs, old dogs, young dogs, pretty much dogs of all types. I have worked in a doggy daycare and volunteered at the Houston SPCA, walking the dogs in their shelter.

Central Tavares is a neighborhood in Tavares known for being a hub of activity, and it's the place to be if you're looking for exciting dining, shopping, and other recreational opportunities. It's located on the northern shore of Lake Dora, so walking around the neighborhood with your dog on a leash is a fun way to spend some time.
