I have grown up around dogs and currently own a Malamute called Alaska. She was a rescue dog who had been badly mistreated and had been abandoned on the streets. I had to work hard to gain her trust, and walking her can be challenging because she gets very scared, but she has lived with me now for 5 years and is a loving dog. She still gets scared but I always put the work in and know all about the individual needs of different dogs. I have a lot of experience walking and dog sitting for family and friends, from puppies to older rescue dogs with extra needs. I love dogs and am aware each has their own needs and that routines and consistency is very important for all dogs.
