Hi, I’m Aaron, very nice to meet you and your best friend and can’t wait to walk your pup! I grew up in small town central IL taking care of multiple black labs. Almost 6 years ago, I took in a shelter dog named Addie and her and I have been walking and hiking and playing fetch ever since. I’m looking forward to walking your little (or big!) family member with the same love and care I share with my Addie. Thanks for reading my profile.
