My name is Doru and I am originally from Romania. I grew up in a small town, where my grandparents had a farm, and always loved being around animals! I moved to the US in 2014 after meeting my wife while working on cruise ships together. After adopting Riley (our 3 year old Min-Pin) I became very interested in dog behavior and training. I started doing research and taking an online course in animal emotion & cognition. This was when I realized that I wanted to work with animals full-time. Since then, I have worked as a dog walker, sitter/boarder, and trainer in several cities. Most recently I was employed as an Animal Care Specialist at the Animal Care Centers of NYC. I can’t wait to meet your furry friends!
