Experience with animals and own pets

Tjokkie is energetic and loves playing outside. He follows his mom everywhere, is very loving and loves sitting on his back legs. Zyzz is a new edition to the family. I love him more and more every day. He has his own play pen outside, as he loves being outdoors. I love animals very much and will always make sure that they are safe and happy.

Additional Comments:

While I’m sure my pets were taken care of and were happy, I didn’t like that he wanted to leave to pick up a drunk friend, and the Sunday it was a sick family member.

I allowed it as it seemed urgent, I only asked that he leave lights on for me as he was supposed to wait until I got home.

This was not done and I arrived to a dark house.

This was probably just an unfortunate timing of incidents, but it didn’t leave me with a sense of reliability.

I admire his commitment to his friends and family but I need to be sure that my fur family is taken care of as well.

Note from StudentCo: Thank you so much for bringing these matters to our attention. We have addressed this with Dohan. Thank you for helping us improve our service :).
