Danielle and I have been friends since the earth cooled, and she has been my source of encouragement for raising well-mannered fur-babies all the while.

What Danielle would like to know about your dog
I'll ask about your dog's activity preferences, habits, schedules, and any behavioral issues/quirks and relevant medical information.

I love all breeds and have a soft spot for pit bulls.
