Taking care of your dog can test your patience, jangle your nerves, stretch your wallet and send you down one rabbit hole after another as you look for answers to your latest questions or worries.
Now, don’t get me wrong! Being lucky enough to share your life with a dog, or dogs, is one of life’s beautiful blessings, one I’ve enjoyed for decades, but it can also be pretty challenging at times.
Whether it’s teaching the right potty habits, choosing the best food, figuring out whether or not Fido needs a vet visit, or wondering why (after all your hard work) you seem to be the proud owner of a canine juvenile delinquent…. you’ll find yourself looking for answers over and over again. That’s where I can help.
