You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking. The meet-and-greet is 100% cost and obligation-free and will be arranged for a time that suits you.

Experience with animals and own pets

I am very lucky to share my home with three doggies: Jolie, Angus and Rocky were rescued by my family and I from Wollies Animal Project in 2014 and my life has never been better! They bring new life, warmth and happiness to my household.

Jolie is a feisty mixed breed with adorable floppy ears and a tiny head. Angus is a full-of-life Dachshund, with the softest ears and the warmest cuddles, who I somehow fall in love with more and more every day.

Rocky is a kind hearted black and white mix breed, who has more love to give than his tiny body can hold.

I have grown up in a household that has always been filled with animals, including dogs, birds, bunnies and hamsters.

I have always had a great love for taking care of animals and tend to take the responsibility of care upon myself, no matter the situation.
