I have pet sat for family members and neighbors for many years and I have known many dogs. I also have an Australian Shepherd of my own. We go on walks at least once usually twice a day. I love to be outdoors and I’m sure your dog does too! I’m a trustworthy person and have an open schedule. I promise I’ll treat your pup well and give it lots of love and fun while you’re away!
