My name is Ernesto and I live in Rancho Bernardo. I have 3 dogs, Bullet, Nala and Charlie. When I was 15, I went scuba diving with Mako sharks and fell in love with the species and aspire to work with these magnificent creatures one day. I love working with pets every day of my life and being able to make a positive difference in their lives and in the lives of their pet owners.
