How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
When we got Bertie, I had just left the Navy and was looking for a job. Bertie got used to me being at home with him all day everyday and when I did go out he got seperation anxiety. When I went out whether it was for ten minutes or an hour he would chew the house up. I knew I had to find a job where I could take Bertie with me. That was hard to find so I set up my own dog walking business. It took off really fast and we soon became a success business. From there Toby came to live with us. I set up the twitter chat hour #woofwoofwednesday and from there I set up Woof Woof Network. So my life has completely changed since having a dog
