See the world through your dog’s eyes. Observe them. Learn from them. Living with a dog is easier than living with a human. Create an environment that will support your dog. Provide them with healthy food, enjoyable mental and physical exercise along with positive guidance. Return the love and help them thrive ~ Tamara Tokash
