Experience with animals and own pets

I love playing with animals and looking after them. At my home, I look after our 4 dogs; Elvis and Lisa the 2 Staffordshire terriers, Kesha the Italian Greyhound and Chloe the Maltese poodle.

Then there are 2 cats, Lalla and Spickels, 2 Ringneck parrots, Blue and Fluffy, and finally the Koi fish reptiles.

I enjoy my time playing and walking the dogs. Some of my daily activities include cleaning the Koi pond and cleaning the swimming pool. I am very excited to become a pet and house sitter and can’t wait to meet my first new furry friends!
