Hello, everyone! I'm Paige, long-time dog owner and lover. Growing up, I regularly walked and boarded local neighborhood dogs of different breeds, from doxens to dobermans. I'm knowledgable of basic training techniques, and believe positive reinforcement is the most effective tool to combat bad behavior. Rest assured, I'm comfortable around dogs of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments; in short, I'm an equal opportunity dog lover! I can't wait to meet your best friend!
