Experience with animals and own pets

I grew up with two of the friendliest and loving Boxer dogs, Duke and Benjamin, living on a farm until moving up to the city with them. It is my dream to add my own Boxers to my own family one day, but until then I am looking for any chance to be with animals and give them love while their owners are away!

Big dogs are my passion but cats, little dogs, fish, birds and bunnies of all sizes have a very large place in my heart.

My biggest challenge as of yet was taking care of a friend’s 6 poodles, but I came to love the job and now know that I am ready and willing to take care of pet families, big or small!

Kayla looked after my poodles when I went away for a week to Cape Town.

She had to feed and play with the dogs during the day. She slept at my house for the week as well.

My poodles are very demanding dogs and always need attention so she had her hands full but did an amazing job of taking care of them.
