What Derek would like to know about your dog

I would love to know daily schedule (feeding, bathroom, exercise), how much they are fed and at what specific times, when they are typically let out to go to the bathroom, if there are any favorite toys or treats, medication schedules and primary veterinary clinic in case of emergencies (I use Grace Animal Hospital located in Lexington, SC).

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
