Hello! We are a happy couple, living in a 1BR brownstone in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, with an outdoor space.
We love all animals, but have special affection for dogs. Jessica grew up with mixed breed rescue dogs and has an increased sensitivity to animals as a result. Mikel has had professional training in dog behavior and raised a German Shepherd from puppy adolescence.
We first joined DV in March of 2012 because we missed having canine companionship in our lives. We had so much love to give but not a dog to give it to. We met some wonderful furry friends that first year and still keep in touch with them (and their humans) to this day.
In 2013 we went on a bit of a hiatus because we got our own pup. Now that we've had him for a year we're happy to introduce him (and reintroduce ourselves) to the DV community. Hudson is kind, gentle, and very well behaved. There's not an aggressive bone in his body. We went through the process of certifying him as a Therapy Dog through the Good Dog Foundation and he starts his "work" in the spring.
We love taking walks to the Brooklyn Waterfront, to Hillside Dog park, Fort Greene Park, and occasionally Prospect Park. We would be happy to bring your dog with us and welcome him/her to join our little family while you're away :).
