“I can’t imagine a life without dogs. I work with them, training them is my hobby, I live with them, they go almost everywhere with me. They make me laugh, comfort me, guard my house, are loyal and have pure hearts…

…Dogs are my best friends. They are affectionate, have taken me all around the country, have brought amazing people into my life and are always teaching me new lessons.  I am grateful and blessed to be able to combine all things dog into Petra’s Dog Resource Center.”
