Experience with animals and own pets

I have 5 pets at home - 3 dogs and 2 cats. They are living a life of luxury!

Animal rescue is dear to my heart. I have always had love and passion for animals for as long as I can remember and I find it easy to bond with animals and spread the love.

I have looked after a number of animals in the past, including dogs, cats, birds, fish and even tortoises!

I love playing outside with dogs especially near water or taking them for walks as I love the outdoors myself. I enjoy spending time indoors whilst studying and the animals are calm and roam around me - it can be quite comforting!

My past experiences I have stayed over and house/pet sat, and did basic house chores, groomed the animals, walked them around the neighborhood and so on, I thoroughly enjoy spending time and looking after animals.

She has house sat for me before.

She had to look after my two dogs. At first I was worried about getting someone to look after them , where instead I used to take them to the kennels.

The moment I met her, her love for animals shone through - she set my mind to ease and my dogs did not have a problem with her.

She was neat and very well kept and such a lovely friendly girl - I have met her on a few occasions because we live in the same complex . I often see her busy petting the dogs/cats in our complex.

Additional notes:

She did everything I had asked her to do , such as :

  • washed the dogs' water and food bowls
  • water the plants and grass
  • replanted the the flowers that my dogs dug up
  • found the dogs' leashes and took them on walks.
