Experience with animals and own pets

I am very fortunate to have Blitz and Lola in my life. They are both Schnauzer dogs who I love very much. They sleep by my side every night and I love to play fetch with Blitz as he is the energetic one of the two, with Lola always watching us like she does not understand the game we are playing.

I was in res for three years were we had six dogs always playing and always giving love to the residents. I have experience looking after pets and homes of friends and family all my life and absolutely love animals.

Hugo is really very sweet with our animals.

When we got back from our weekend our dogs were relaxed and happy.

Our home was neat and tidy as well.

I will definitely recommend Hugo!
