I love animals and especially dogs! I grew up with a beagle and have been walking dogs for neighbors and family friends since I was in middle school. I have also done pet sitting where I stayed at an owner's house and was completely responsible for their pet's care while they were away. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you and your dog are satisfied!
