Experience with animals and own pets

I have had experience with animals such as dogs, cats, fish, birds, hamsters and snakes, on occasion. As I have grown up with pets from a very young age - I feel strongly about protecting pets and caring for them as much as they care for us. Pets, to me, are considered to be the most important part of our daily happiness. They greet us in the morning with warm cuddles and they are always excited to see their owner after a long day at the office.

I currently have four pets. My pets are Bibi, a 3-year-old Jack Russell, with a very bubbly and goofy personality. Bibi has a younger sister named Dippies, who is also a Jack Russell and is about 2 or 3 months younger than Bibi.

The big sister of the pack is Emma, an 8-year-old German Shepherd crossed with a Boerboel. Rosco is Emma's biological brother and is the man of the house. He takes care of his sisters and considers me part of the sisterhood, as he is very protective and loyal. I enjoy taking care of my pets, as they take care of me.

When Emma was still a pup, she fell into the swimming pool and I had to dive in and rescue her. After I got her out of the swimming pool, I immediately rushed to the vet (wet clothes and all) and she was able to make a full recovery and is still living live on the edge to this day. I have also had to rush Bibi to the vet, as she was stung by a bee.

I have experience in grooming big dogs and being soft with little ones. I absolutely love animals and take pleasure in caring for them and spending time with them.

Additional Comments:

Chandre has been absolutely outstanding in taking care of both our dogs.

She communicated on time, carried out her tasks, gave detailed feedback on their status and she showed so much love and concern towards our pets.

We were assured that they were in capable hands.

We've never had a pet sitter go the extra mile and carry our their duties with such passion.

It's clear that she does this for the love of animals and not just of the money.

Please take care of her at StudentCo.

Going forward we prefer Chandre taking care of our fur babies.
