Hi! My name is Matt and I've been a dog owner for nearly my whole life. My family has owned dogs as big as German shepherds and as small as a chiweenie. Over the years, I've been invited to watch many of my neighbors' and relatives' dogs, which was the reason I fell in love with all dogs.

“I’d love to be your dogs new companion/walk buddy!”

Hello! I have a lot of experience caring for dogs, from bitty puppies to seniors. I have trained my own puppy and understand the importance of being kind and patient with animals. I also foster and train service dogs/puppies in training. That being said, I know many advanced commands and am comfortable using different signals for different commands. I also am familiar with administering medications when needed. I am very active and don't mind taking dogs for long walks/runs as well!
