I grew up with a black lab till my early college years. After moving out of my parents home I decided to adopt two cats who I love as if they are my own children. I am an animal lover and am just looking to see if I can walk someone's dog a few times a week after work. I graduated from Simpson College in a double major of Criminal Justice and Computer Science. I currently work in IT.

Would take children to the park or etc is allowed by parents and also a movie that parents approve. I have my own apartment with a puppy named chunk and my fianc that I can either stay at the residence of the child or I can take them with me and bring them back home if allowed. Can provide dinner and homework help as well.
