Experience with animals and own pets

I have been surrounded by pets my whole life! I got my first dog when I was 3 years old. From this young age, I was taught to look after my dog . As a child, I adored caring for my fish,dogs and hamsters.

I love animals and have experience volunteering at Woodrock shelter. I also go horse riding as often as I can.

I am really looking forward to working with animals in pet sitting! I am comfortable looking after a variety of pets, including dogs, cats and small animals.

Additional Comments: Our animals love Jason! We were away for 2 weeks, which was much longer than usual and I think the fur babies missed Jason when we came back... Jason had to take on a bit more responsibility than just caring for the fur kids being that we were away so long. In this he did an excellent job as well. I feel very comfortable that Jason can handle anything thrown at him. Best of all, he manages to get my very human-shy Cloe out of hiding and engaging with the rest of the house which is awesome to see in the pictures he sends
