I've walked dogs for Penn Vet's Working Dog Center and have volunteered with the Animal Coalition of Delaware County & PACT for Animals for over 3 years. I ...

What John would like to know about your dog

I would just like to know their general temperament and how they tend to react to other dogs, people, people on bikes, since this is important for walks (you never know who you'll encounter). I love all kinds of dogs and have no particular preference or restrictions.
