I currently live 5 minutes walk from a dog park, and 10 minutes walk from a vet.
I grew up around dogs and have spent most of my life being in love with various dogs. I believe that they're all much too cute; being that cute probably shouldn't be allowed.
I moved to Australia from the United States, where I had the most lovely dog. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to bring her with, so I'm dangerously low on puppy cuddles. Star (my puppy in the states) went from being the saddest rescue pit bull you have ever seen, to being a registered therapy dog who continues to "see" clients with my mom, who is a counselor. It is safe to say that I know how to train puppies, although I do not call myself a professional yet. There are no bad dogs- only dogs who have learned to communicate in different ways.
Let me take care of your dog or small animal (but not cats or birds, sorry) and you won't be disappointed.
