“Making tails wag since 2017 ^^!”

Dogs have been a huge part of my life since I was a small child. My family always owned German shepherds and I began volunteering at a local animal shelter when I was a teenager. Now that I am in college, I still like to spend much of my free time with animals. Over the years, I have gotten to experience working with all different breeds of dogs and feel confident with any temperament.

I'm Erik and I recently moved into the area with my fiance. I have lived with dogs for the past 7 years and have been the primary person to walk them and make sure that they are getting the exercise that they need. I like to take brisk walks that make me feel like I am getting some exercise in but am able to adjust to whatever your dog is feeling like that day. Burning through some of that energy will make sure that your buddy feels relaxed by the time you get home. I really can't think of a more fun way to explore this city than to have a furry companion help scoffer me around.
