I am a life-long dog lover with experience with many different sizes and breeds of dogs. I grew up with a Hungarian Vizsla named Hoover and currently live with my family dog (a Boykin Spaniel named Atticus) and help care for an American Staffordshire Terrier named Brew. I have volunteered at the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society while living in Maine, and I have been known to stop mid-sentence to point out a dog and proceed to go and ask their owner if I can pet them. I have also pet sat a Bichon Frise, so my experience with dogs extends from a small Bichon Frise to my cousin's Great Pyrenees. I am extremely patient and I understand the importance of letting your dog get out and stretch their legs. If they decide to stop and sniff the same spot for 5 minutes straight, I am happy to let them (as long as it is safe of course) seeing as they've been waiting all day to get outside! I have a great understanding of dog behavior and body language and will use that knowledge to make sure that your best friend is happy and safe!
