Experience with animals and own pets

My family has always been huge lovers of pets, from our beautiful dogs to our lovable yet mischievous cats.

While my family has never branched out to the less conventional pets and animals, I have always loved them and been fascinated by them! Trips to nature reserves and sanctuaries are always something that I look forward to and absolutely love!

My family currently has only one dog, Bowser. A German Shepherd that is an energetic goofball. Along with that we have three beautiful cats by the names of Kiara, Simba and Sox! I am ecstatic to be working with other people's beautiful pets and look after them.

Massimo was my host in SA while I was doing some of my studies abroad. He was very friendly and showed a lot of concern with everything that I needed, dedicating time to help me whenever needed. It was a great time and enjoyed every moment. No complaints at all, Massimo is an all-round great guy.
