Hi! My name is Craig. I grew up in a very pet friendly family. We always had dogs and cats, and this continued once I was out on my own. I had Siberian Husky (in Florida!!), and a good ole fashioned Heinz 57 mutt. Little bit of Shepherd, little bit of Chow, and a whole lot of hound dog. I took them both through obedience training and even did some obedience trials. They’ve passed on, and I miss them like crazy. Currently I only have cats, but love to be around dogs. This app is a great way to do that, and help out others as well as get a little exercise. I look forward to meeting and walking your pooch!
