When Gene watches your pet

Everywhere has places to explore. Around me, the beach is a block away and there is a waterfront park along the marina. Lots of dogs in the area, as well as ground squirrels and jack rabbits to provide great smells for your guys to track and enjoy. I will keep the dog on a leash unless you say otherwise and I am comfortable that the dog will respond to me.
