I grew up on a farm with German shepherds, a miniature dachshund, and a blind poodle... And I've always dreamed of working with animals. Since going to grad school for my doctorate in psychology, I have been the human to terriers Darcy and Dash. In my free time I've read dog behavior books, trained my pups as much as time allowed, and practiced my dog sitting skills on the dogs of my professors and coworkers.
If your dog stays with me, we will go on walks in my neighborhood and spend time playing in my backyard. I work Monday through Friday until 4:30, but I'm very dedicated to exercising my pups (and your's!) in the morning before work and all afternoon/evening once I'm home. If your dog likes to run, I'm training for a half marathon and love having a running buddy! I also have a large partially finished basement that serves as a great place for dogs to play if the weather is keeping us indoors. Otherwise, lots of love and snuggles are on the agenda!
No breed preferences, but I do prefer dogs who are comfortable with other dogs since I have 2 of my own. I also prefer dogs who are crate trained or do not have serious separation anxiety since I am gone part of the day (don't worry though... They will be loved to pieces before and after work!). Dogs who aren't food aggressive are also preferable.
