What Carissa would like to know about your dog

I have worked with many different types of dog breeds, so I do not have any preference towards what I am comfortable being around. Every dog is loved by me no matter how big or small!

I can promise you that your beloved fur child will be in amazing hands while you're away! I adore animals, so your dog will constantly be unconditionally loved and played with every second they are with me. Your pup and I will enjoy taking walks/runs together and playing at the doggy park. No energy level will be a problem with me since I myself am a very active person and enjoy the outdoors.
