Matthew has been a highly competent dog walker at the animal shelter where I am the event coordinator for over a year, and he is among the most responsible, warm-hearted, caring and respectful young men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He has a genuine feeling for our dogs that can’t be faked, an ability to calm the most anxious of rescue animals and get through to the most fearful so that they are soon walking happily on the leash in his confident hand. I would gladly trust Matthew with my own beloved dog Puff if he only covered the area where I live! He spends a great deal of his own free time here because he honestly loves these dogs as if they were his own, and I believe he radiates that passion towards all the animals he transports and walks in his business…he simply can’t help it!
