My Mission: Happy, Exercised Pups

I'm a former semi-pro football player and group fitness instructor with a need to stay active. I work from home for a leading cybersecurity firm, so I'm available for visits or hosting day and night. My two coworkers are a 2-year old Belgian Malinois and 9-year old Siberian Husky. They're more so moral support but we get in our morning, afternoon and evening walks, play, and training.

Our home is fenced with plenty of areas ...

What Craig would like to know about your dog

I don't not have any breed preferences. I firmly believe there is no such thing as a "bad" breed - just bad handlers & owners. Dogs are born to please their human and perform as a pack. I've seen plenty of dogs who were ditched at a shelter because they were labeled disobedient or dangerous turned into great, social companions in the hands of a proper handler.

Same as I shared above, I want your input on your dogs likes and dislikes. I do not introduce dogs to new activities without a specific request from you. I strive to be an extension of your dog's pack and routine. My time with them should be an extension of the time they spend with you. That includes the levels of stress, time to rest, feeding schedule, bathroom breaks, etc.

When Craig watches your pet

I'll request your input on your dogs likes and dislikes. I do not introduce dogs to new activities without a specific request from the owner. For example - if your pup isn't used to hiking, we'll find something they're comfortable with! I strive to be an extension of your dog's pack and routine. My time with them should be an extension of the time they spend with you. That includes the levels of stress, time to rest, feeding schedule, bathroom breaks, etc.

Common activities we do today:

*Walks - with the pack or individual (30 minutes or longer)
*Runs - pack or individual (Typically run up to 3 miles to avoid injury or discomfort for the dog. Can accommodate less or up to 10 miles)
*Hikes - pack or individual (Hikes range in difficulty but are typically Easy to Moderate if bringing new dogs)
*Fetch - I live on a golf course with permission to use the fairway for playtime and open running space
*Swimming - have a private pool
*Treadmill training - have a professional Dog Trotter slat mill - (video here: https://youtu.be/LZmFfU1IK8M?t=21)
*Downtime - the activity of relaxing and plenty of scratches
