I love dogs! I have experience with all sizes from XS Pomeranians to XL St. Bernard’s and Newfies, and everything in between. I'm a very active surfer, yogi, and hiker all over New England and love being out in the elements, including rain and snow. I spend a lot of time at the beach in any weather! I also work at South Boston Animal Hospital-you may have seen me behind the front desk. I would love to take your pup with me on a safe and fun adventure around the neighborhood!
