Inspiring Conversations with Dustin Hoye of Dog Squad

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dustin Hoye.

Dustin, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
At a young age I grew to love dogs and the care that is needed to have a dog. Caring for any living thing brought joy to my life and allowed me to expressive myself because I never had anyone personally care about me while growing up. I was born in Detroit Michigan to a spanish father and a Irish mother. I spend most of my adolescent youth in the Detroit Foster care system until I aged out and became a adult.
While growing up I had a gift of feeling emotions so most of my life was a emotional roller coaster and I had to find a way to adapt to my surroundings. Finding someone to share what I was feeling and that was difficult because I never was that type of person who communicated with others. I began to find in myself the ability I never thought I had with dogs which was the ability to understand their emotions no matter the size or the breed. I knew each dog is unique but what connected us was our emotions without having to say anything.
What got me to where I am today is hard work and dedication to be able to share my emotions not just for dogs but to their family’s.
What “DOG SQUAD” means to me is the ability to bring community’s and Dog handlers together who have that gift of feeling and understanding emotions because coming together shouldn’t have to feel uncomfortable.
