I am the owner of a 5 year old Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix named Granite. We live in a house with a yard in Sunnyvale. Currently there are 3 other people in the house along with a sweet little Boston Terrier named Panda. We are all dog lovers at the house.
I've helped look after dogs over my years with Granite - from small to large to young to old. I used to share an account on Dog Vacay a few years ago but now I'm creating my own account to get back into it.
I take advantage of the weekends by taking Granite out on different types of adventures. Some activities that I normally enjoy with Granite include hiking in the woods, hitting the beach, and camping. I strongly believe in exercising a dog and giving them an opportunity to run off-leash if they are disciplined enough to handle it. I focus on a dog's happiness more than anything and so I try to cater to their emotional needs as best I can. I approach dog happiness by trying to strike a balance between socializing, exercising, and exploring with a dog. This philosophy is how I choose my weekend K-9 adventures.
I very much enjoy taking pictures of Granite and any other dogs we're with so if you leave your dog with me you can expect a small photo album showing our time together and the places we explored. Looking forward to meeting you and your dog! =)
