Experience with animals and own pets

I have been exposed to animals my entire life! Currently, we have two Dachshunds, chickens, and ducks.

I have been exposed to and taken care of many dog breeds, such as Great Danes, Spaniels, Shar Pei, Dalmatians, Huskies, and Labradors. I have played with and cared for all of these breeds! I am also a cat lover and would love to look after cats!

I have great love for all animals and believe I get along with them really well.

Additional Comments: Good Day, I was very happy with Louis looking after my pets. I do have to mention the following which I find unacceptable. On Saturday evening Louis asked if he could use our wifi while we where away, saying if he needed to log into his laptop. I did not have a problem with this as I was under the impression that he would check e-mails and do a few things for work. He mentioned that he had work for the University. On our return this weekend when I tried to log into my computer it stated that I did not have sufficient funds/data. Our data contract runs from the 1st of the month untill the last day, so Louis used all our data that we normally use in a month in 6 days. Not only did he use our entire months data, we have an arrangement that should our data be finished we have a limit set on out of bundle data upto R200.00, this he also used up. We are therefore now without any data for the rest of July. I never told him that we have uncapped wifi, so he just went and downloaded a huge amount of stuff (ex movies/music ect). I find this disrespectful, how do you go and download large items without permission from the owner. He really was good at his job which was looking after my babies, but this we really find unacceptable and would appreciate feedback. We are also waiting for a detailed bill from our service provider to show what was downloaded.

*Note from StudentCo: Sitters are expected to treat properties with respect. This naturally extends to using resources like internet data in a respectful manner. The matter was discussed with Louis and Yvette given a discount voucher for her next booking.
