Experience with animals and own pets

I share my home with two dogs and an African Grey Parrot. Of the two dogs, one is a Boerboel cross and the other is a Border Collie. I spend a lot of time with all of the animals - I take the dogs for walks and spend time outside throwing the ball or playing tug-of-war with them. I sit with the African Grey and try stroke his beak or give him a snack to eat as much as I can.

I have also been lucky enough to have some experience with farm and wild animals (raising and feeding them) on my Uncle's farm.
