Bobby retired in November 2017 after 27 years as a Correction Officer for the Connecticut Dept. of Corrections.  Retirement has given him the great opportunity to work with and meet all kinds of great pets! Especially dogs. Bobby loves dogs and has never lived a day of his life without having at least one.  Pictured with me are my two buddies, Shadow ( the cockapoo ) and Locky ( the golden goof!)

In his spare time Bobby enjoys photography and taking lots of pictures of his college daughter’s soccer games, and his two sons when they don’t run away from his camera.

John grew up with dogs, likes to pet and walk dogs to unwind, and some might say he is a bit obsessed with dogs..and, he is not trying to offend any cats, who John has also owned and lived with in the past, and who have been good companions.  Over the past 12 years, he and his family have continuously had anywhere from 2 to 4 dogs at a single time. Currently, he has two pitbull mixes, Josie and Clooney, and a beagle mix, Oliver, but is always willing to consider adding another pup! He likes to go on adventures with his dogs, wife, and 6 year old daughter, practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, exercise, go hiking (preferably, with dogs), and visit breweries (preferably ones that have dogs around that he can pet…and that have great beer, of course).
