Dogs are people too!
I've had dogs (and cats) my whole life, and have taken care of friends' and family's pets for as long as I can remember. Everyone who knows me calls me an animal whisperer for the way they respond to me. I've never met an animal I haven't liked, or that hasn't liked me!
I'm a graphic designer working from home, so my schedule is quite flexible. I can take your pup to the dog park ...
