Experience with animals and own pets

I have owned dogs since I have been 5 years old. Currently only have a non-venomous Californian King snake as a pet, his name is "V" due to him having a V-shape pattern on his head.

I often house sit for people who have dogs, cats or other animals. I love animals and always spend time playing with them and taking them for walks.

My aunt and uncle have two Yorkshire terriers that I take for walks often over the weekends.

Many thanks to Hanro for doing an outstanding job with our pets while we were away.

It was great to come back home and the koi pond was still clean, our big fur baby acted as if we were only gone for the day, usually after returning from holiday
