Having grown up near the family farm and throughout the countryside, I have been around and loved animals my whole life. In particular, dogs.
From the age of 8 I had a miniature schnauzer (named Sparky) for whom I was the primary caregiver, walker, bather and playmate. My childhood and later life were made much richer because of Sparky as well as other dogs and I've always felt that those who grow up without a dog are missing out on a lot of happiness.
Having said that, I understand the amount of care, attention, exercise, play and love (and food) a dog needs to be happy. I always aim to provide these in abundance and ensure your dog is as happy as can be!
A note about my residence: I live with my partner who also loves dogs so attention will likely be double. We live literally across the road from St Ann's Well gardens which we treat as our garden and is great for dogs/walks. Hove green is only a short stroll away too.
We often go out to Castle Hill nature reserve and around Devil's Dyke walking which would surely be a treat for any four-legged mate too.
