I am a pet lover like all of us here and I grow up surrounded by pets, my plus is that I work in a animal health pharmaceutical company so I know a lot of pet medicines, diseases and behavior.
My house has a small backward enough for the pet to explore and use as a toilet, there is also the garage that serves as a shelter for rainy and windy days. The animals have access to both. Anytime there is people at home the dogs will have also access to the house and can sleep inside if they are used to that.
The reason I decided to board and care for other people's dogs, is that I am single, work full time and still wanna travel the world, I cannot commit to a dog's life at the moment, so I decided to find other ways to care for them.
I use mad paws, but I also foster dogs helping them to find a new home and I am part of the community volunteer program walking an old lady's dog.
