Hello, my name is Sydney. While I was growing up, my family were dog people and had dogs galore. I currently don't have the space to adequately care for a dog and find myself missing their spark. I am happy for the opportunity to go for a walk with your good boy/girl.

I took a class at Animal Behavior College and I used to volunteer at an animal rescue in Syracuse, NY. I had 6 dogs who were crate trained and used to eat at the same time in the same room together with no issues. I've also helped people who's dog were scheduled to be euthanized for behavior issues prevent that from happening. I love dogs!!

I have always had pets growing up. I have had a dog for over a year now and I have loved every minute of it. She is an English Bulldog, so I have experience with more stubborn type walkers. I get a lot of inspiration from watching Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer.
