I am a true dog lover. I have been around dogs all my life and helped train and raise them. My boyfriend and I recently adopted our first dog after dog-sitting regularly for about a year. Our dog is a Cocker Spaniel who loves all dogs and would make a good buddy for a variety of types of dogs.
I work in the cultural heritage field and have a very routine schedule. I work close to where I live and can come home at lunch time for a nice walk. I am a runner so I love to be outside and go for walks with the dog. I really enjoy taking care of pets and can't wait to spoil your pup and give them all the attention they want.
I've been a dog lover since my family got our first rescue when I was 5 years old. We had her for over 15 years and she was part of our family. Also in my big extended family nearly everyone has at least one dog and so I'm very comfortable around all types of dogs.
I love all dogs, just like people it's cool to meet and learn about their personalities. I am best with the loveable dogs and those dogs that like a good walk.
I own my own car and have a garage where I park.
I have experience in giving (or hiding) heart medicine in food for my family's dog. I also have administered creams and drops over the years for different medical concerns that our pup had. As long as there are instructions, I'm happy to help the pup get what they need.
During the week I would walk the dog for about 30min in the morning, then come spend 20minutes walking the dog around lunchtime and then at least one longer walk in the PM. If the dog isn't a happy walker I would just let it outside to do its business in the park across my street.
My front yard (about 100 yards or less) away is a nice open park, where lots of dogs are walked or let out to play. This is where I would take your dog for some outdoor exercise.
There is a lot of dog friendly areas in my neighborhood and everything is walker friendly. There is a park which has a nice path that leads to rock creek parkway. If your dog likes to be out and about I would likely take them down to the Georgetown waterfront where they could be outside and run around.
I also typically ONLY accept one dog at a time, so I can ensure that I am giving that pup my undivided attention. I also have a smaller apartment, so often having more than one dog becomes a bit much in the space. I would consider taking in dogs that live in the same household.
