We got my first dog when I was in elementary school, she was a Rottweiler/Lab mix named Socks. Currently I have a Yellow Lab and American Dalmatian. They were my kids before I had any children. I want to be the best Barkly walker you’ve ever had! This is more than just a side job for me, I very much enjoy and take a lot of pride in doing this. I aspire to give your pup the best care I can.See Profile

I cared for my personal son King for 16 yrs. He was a st. Bernard. Rot, sharpi mix. I miss having a pet around and love to care for animals. After having to put king down I put off getting another doggy but this will help me as I help others care for their pets.See Profile
