Life coach

Walter is good at sniffing out things to play with, chasing soft toys, walkies, and sleeping. With his innate curiosity, we thought he might be good at media research, but he turned out to be terrible at that.

In any event, as a professional emotional support dog (yes, really, he is), Walter is adept at reminding us that there is more to life than PR.
