Hi! My name is Nicole and I'm a freshman at UC Berkeley but originally from NY. I’ve always loved dogs — I can’t remember a time when my home didn’t have at least one dog — and as I grew older, I realized I wanted to do more for animals. I decided to volunteer at my local animal shelter. There, I was constantly exposed to dogs with different personalities, temperaments, and quirks. Through observation and just talking to the shelter staff, I’ve learned a lot of information about dogs, their body language, and any safety precautions to take when presented with different situations. I love dogs more than anything, and safety is always my #1 priority!
