When did you first get Harley?

I got Harley 4 weeks ago when he was just 8 weeks old.

What does it feel like to be a dog dad?

I’ve found this new love where it has helped me stay grounded. Having such a manic day, coming home to Harley has really allowed me to appreciate some down time without feeling guilty.

What do you love the most about Harley?

I absolutely love his energy; he has his own mind which takes him all over the places. Harley is an extremely caring dog but of course, can be a little mischievous at times. But who couldn’t love him right?

What do you love the most about being a dog dad?

I adore our walks and just having him there by my side.  I spend a lot of time at home now, which is the best part as I really get to enjoy every minute of just… living.

Any advice for new dog parents?

I think puppy training is a must! Making sure they are well disciplined and obedient from a young age will help them mould into a better lifestyle once they are older. Also, prepare yourself for all circumstances. The responsibility is overloaded, and it’s just like having a child, yet this child doesn’t talk human!
