Experience with animals and own pets

Some of my most cherished moments are the ones I share with my dog, Lulu. She is a 9-year-old Jack Russell Terrier. She has a very special place in my heart and we both take care of each other. Her favourite activities include going for a walks, riding in the car, sleeping and of course, begging for a treat.

Growing up, we had multiple pets such as fish, birds, rabbits, a turtle, a hamster and a few other dogs. When I was younger, I also took horse riding lessons and enjoyed feeding and brushing them. I have experience in taking care of the pets and homes of my friends and family.
