“Dog lover”

I have been a dog owner for 20 years. Walking dogs is one of my favorite activities! I have walked neighborhood dogs and watched dogs when neighbors are on vacation. I have been an animal lover my whole life. I am often training for running races and enjoy being outside and active.

Can run with dogs, Oral medicine administration, Senior dog care, Puppy care

I've been passionate about animals all my life. I grew up on a farm in the country, so I was constantly exposed to a wide variety of animals. I volunteered at my local veterinary clinic for several years when I was younger. I've owned cats my whole life, but have been walking and sitting friends' dogs for about a year. I realized that dog walking was the happiest part of my day every day, and that I want to do more of it because it's what I love!
