From our initial meeting where Dacey took the time to get to know not just my dog, Buddy, but me and what I wanted to get out of his experience with Poop’d Out everything has been amazing. Dacey helped socialize Buddy and helped me learn some doggy body language to the point where I no longer have any worries about taking him out and about around other dogs. Buddy’s favourite days are walk days, he always has a blast and I think he might love Dacey more than me lol.
