I love dogs, and have been around my whole life. Currently, my wife and I have three rescue dogs, and are involved in fostering and boarding all types of dogs. My wife was on the board of a dog rescue, so I have been exposed to all sorts of dogs and have learned much about dog behavior, body language, and safe handling. I have a calm personality, and dogs take well to me, even those who normally don't trust men.
