Hi, my name is Ben, I'm 22 and I have lived my entire life in the Chicago suburbs and in the wonderful company of dogs. I've spent many years nurturing, raising, training, housing, walking, and most importantly loving so many different dogs that all my experience and knowledge stems straight from real world experiences. I have been lucky enough to have learned techniques, treatment tips and behavior studies from future Vets in training that I know, as well as tips and techniques from pet groomers too, and these have all given me knowledge that I'll always have with me. I've never met a dog that I haven't shared a mutual love with, I've always been able to connect with any and all dogs no matter size, age or breed, and because of this I've always been the go-to-guy with family and friends when it comes to taking care of their dogs when they can't. My top priority is not only to keep your dog safe and secure, but to also make sure you always know your dog is safe and in trusted hands. Dogs are family and should always be treated with love, respect, and care and I promise to always do just that!
