Experience with animals and own pets

As a child my dream job was being a veterinarian, because being around animals all day sounded amazing. However, as I grew older the dream of becoming a veterinarian changed, but my love for animals stayed.

For a while growing up, I lived on a small plot where we had 4 dogs, 1 bird, 3 chickens and a donkey. Every morning around 6:30 right before we had to leave for school the donkey would call and I would go and give him his carrot or apple.

One holiday I visit my grandparents farm in Nelspruit. I took every chance I got to be out in nature and feed the bucks (Elliot and Milky bar) apple slices. I love spending time with my pets as well as my friends’ pets. We currently have 3 dogs: 2 Labradors (the twins) their names are Max and Snowy, 1 dachshund whose name is Ben-G or as we like to call him Benjamin Franklin. We also have a Cockatiel whose name is Pie as in Sweetie Pie.

I have experience in looking after my friends and family’s pets. I take care of them as if they are my own.

Additional Comments:

Chantelle did a sterling job following my very extensive instructions on taking care of Alex and Domino.

Most of all, it was clear that they were loved to bits (my biggest requirement).

Chantelle bravely shared a bed with the two, administered medication and played with them.

Both my rather shy dogs were totally in love with her, relaxed and happy at the time of my return.

I could not have been more pleased with Chantelle's superior service!
