What Derek would like to know about your dog

I find it to be crucial to know any special needs your dog may have. Also, knowing health concerns for your dog makes walks and sitting much more pleasurable. I also like to know your expectations for how want your pet to be cared for and any habits that it may have. I will also ask you for your training commands so you and I will be able to work as an effective team with your furry friend.
