Dog Lover In San Diego!

I am going to make your dog feel as if they were home. My love for dogs is extreme. Although I am new at dog walking, I have experience with dogs, as I have always had a dog living with me my entire life. I know the feeling of having to leave your furry friend home alone all day, worrying about them. I will pay close attention to your dog's needs and your request, assuring that they are comfortable and have a great walk. I have a five-year-old dog named Bella, according to her DNA test she is a Chow Chow/Chihuahua mutt (although we think she has Shiba Inu in her). She is my everything!See Profile
