When John watches your pet

For me, dog sitting is just like hanging out with a new acquaintance or an old friend. Where I go, my dog goes as well, if at all possible. I have take my dog often to the track with me. They enjoy the outing and the exercise. And if a dog is well socialized, I enjoy playing at the dog park. Playtime and relaxing time is planned and sometimes spontaneous. And if we’re really vibing, and it’s allowed, then we just might sleep side by side.
