As a dedicated cat/dog dad, I have had the experience and pleasure of working with, owning, and loving many animals throughout my life. From growing up with a beautiful Black Lab named Hamilton to currently owning an adorable Terrier Mix named Skip, I've always been in the company of dogs. I've pet sat for friends and family and have taken care of many different breeds, so I've interacted with a wide variety of dogs to know how to read them to try and make them the happiest pup they can be!
