Greetings and Salutations to All Dog Lovers from Rachel!

I am an avid dog lover and, while I currently don’t have any dogs living at my home, I dogsit and dogwalk all the time. It gets lonely without a furry four-legged friend…so I take care of other people’s dogs as a side job–and hobby.

There’s not much better than coming home from work to a happy dog who’s excited to see you and taking the pup to the dog park to play with friends and mingle with dog owners. And I certainly understand the need to know about and be able to make your pet the happiest possible.

My family dog is an English Springer Spaniel named Taylor who has adorable liver and white markings. His favorite things include chewing the tops off liter soda bottles and snuggling under blankets. Taylor’s awfully large for a Spaniel–about 55 lbs!–and we haven’t been able to get the idea through to him that he’s not quite a lap dog. He will jump onto your lap on the couch and rest his head on you like a pillow.
