I am excited to meet your family member and explore the outdoors with them. I grew up with Golden Retrievers and always loved playing with them. I am looking forward to having my own dog one day soon. I know exercise is an essential component of any health human and dogs' lifestyle. I have more experience with medium and large dogs than small ones, but am open to meeting all types of furry friends. My priority is keeping your dog safe during walks and helping them enjoy time outdoors.
