My whole young Adult life I have been surrounded by dogs. My aunt who I lived with briefly in Seattle Washington had two small dogs who were both terrier mixes that I helped out with. I took them on walks 3 times a day and took them to the park and made sure they were active. I also have personal experience with owning a Golden Retriever and a Yellow Lab. I make sure they get the proper exercise by playing outside and taking them to the local dog park for lots of activity. My Lab loves to swim and there is a great dog park with a nice river for her to swim in she loves it. I enjoy spending time outside with my dog and I hope to spend time with yours as well.
