A native Manhattanite, Matt has been a member of the Spot family for the past year. As one of the few people that didn’t have a dog growing up, he came about his love of dogs watching dogs and people interact on the streets of Manhattan. Watching how dogs made people happy regardless of situation and the compassion that dogs and people had for each other left an indelible impression on him.
As a DCS, Matt is responsible for oversight of the dogs in the playroom. He needs to know and understand each dog’s individual personality and be a calm leader that allows each dog to find his or her comfort area within the pack. He enjoys the interaction that he has with the dogs each day. Being as close as he is to dogs all day he can see the quirks in each dog and says that each dog is a unique individual that possess their own personality traits that make each of them special.
