Experience with animals and own pets

I am a proud Bullie mom with two Bull Terriers named Bullet and Pepper. They are very energetic, playful and loving. Whenever I feel like things are getting a little bit too much, I spent extra time with them to recharge and get my own energy back.

Pets have a way of making you feel loved and understood without ever actually doing anything, but being there and that is probably one of my favourite things about animals, and why I love them so much.

I have experience in looking after the pets and houses of friends and family. I did stay-overs at friends’ houses and I normally do daily visits for family whenever they go on holiday.
