I had a dog as a child and grew up helping a friend who was a professional dog breeder. I have been talking friend's dogs for walks and occasionally look after their pets when they are away. I thought I would quite like to combine a love for parks and the outdoors with helping other pet owners when they are away. I had more experience with handling smaller breeds like terriers corgis, labradors, beagles etc. My wife is a cat-person, and we have a cat in our home, so I cannot offer anything in my home.
I am married with two children and have lived in the local area for over 10 years. I know how popular dogs are in the area, and often see professional dog walkers with many dogs on local parks.
