Dog Lover Available For Walks, General Care, And Occasional Overnights, Prefer Gulf Breeze/Navarre Area But May Consider Pensacola Area
I am a 41-year-old mom with a lifetime of experience with dogs. I have owned and cared for what seems like hundreds of dogs. I presently happily and lovingly own 4 Beagle mix dogs. I have owned and cared for other people's dogs as well. There is no dog I have never liked and so far no dog who never liked me. I feel it is important to get to know a dog on their own terms; I never rush or push for bonding. I give them the time they feel they need to give me a chance, and with patience and commitment to the time they need to decide they would like me. Eventually they always come around and give me their trust. I will never hit your dog, so if this what you require for behavior management, then I am not the person to hire. I believe dogs should get the same unconditional love they give to you so freely. I redirect bad behavior and verbally scold with a firm no, but basically I really just care for them, love them and play/cuddle/walk with them. I have owned many breeds myself and cared for many breeds, such as Terrier, Tug, Shih Tzu, Toy Poodles, Chinese Sharpei, Setters, Black Labs, Golden Retrievers, Beagles, and many mixed breeds.
