Experience with animals and own pets

I’ve had a furry family for as long as I've had a human family.

Currently, I am the proud mother of Ragnell, a Labrador cross Boerboel. I also share my home with Bella the pug, Zazu the African Grey, Rolly and Bibi the two Tabby Cats and lastly, Tiger the loveable Maine Coone.

Growing up, I owned and loved many cats and dogs that all have a special place in my heart.

I have house sat for my two older sisters who needed a plant parent and I have pet sat for a family friend who has two dogs, Bonnie and Blackie. I visited them twice a day to give them breakfast, dinner and lots of love!

Additional Comments:

Russel was a rescue dog and came from a very abusive family before we rescued him.

He does not warm up to people very often.

With the meet and greet Russel immediatly jumped up next to Michealla with his ball.

Right there we knew our fur kids would be in excellent hands while we were gone.

Our kids were very well taken care of while we were gone and we will most definitely recommend this service to others.
