Derek is a caring and avid dog-lover. As a junior in college he bought his own dog and trained her to become an excellent hunter. Having a dog, being in college, and an athlete isn’t easy to balance, but Derek did it with ease.

When Derek watches your pet

I take my dog for runs/walks through the tree rows that are right behind my house. I have a big enough yard to play fetch and inside my house we can hang out in the living room and play some more.
