Experience with animals and own pets

I have four amazing fur friends - Max the Jack Russell, WP the Dachshund, Luna the Pitbull and my personal favourite, Jockie the Jack Russell cross that I adopted at Wollies Animal Shelter. He is very close to my heart and likes to sit on my lap when I study and sleep next to me at night. He used to go jogging with me, but it turned more into exploring than actual jogging… I love them all dearly and love spending my free time with them!

Wollies Animal Shelter holds a dear place in my heart and I try to donate food to them every chance that I get. I love spending time there and walking through the kennels giving the furry friends who live there a little treat. I have experience in watching other people's animals and looking after their homes.

This was Elsabe's first booking as a pet sitter, but she came across as if she has been doing it forever!

Phoenix loved her, and she really went above and beyond the call of duty and made sure Phoenix was well cared for.
