I am in my early 20's and a Junior in College. As a 'dog lover', I am very energetic, respectful, and responsible. I will always make sure every dog I walk is as happy as they can be afterwards because I have had numerous experiences dog sitting and dog walking. I have a dog at home and know exactly how to problem solve in times when my dog needs my help. Besides being a great problem solver, I will always have a positive attitude so dog walking seems like the perfect summer activity!
