Experience with animals and own pets

They say dogs are a man's best friend but to me, my dogs are part of the family!

I am blessed to have Snoopy and Elvis in my life. Snoopy is a beautiful Beagle who loves playing outside, going for walks and learning new tricks with me (with the price of a treat of course!) Elvis on the other hand is a loveable Maltese Poodle who loves cuddling with me in front of the tv and will come lay on my lap when I am studying, which I adore! On Sundays I enjoy giving them both a bath which always provides for many laughs!

I have also looked after a variety of pets and enjoy it to interact with the different personalities and unique traits of the pets I get to meet!

Got to know Michelle through very close friends of mine. She did our pet-sitting for approximately 10 days during the past year.

She is an extremely pleasant reliable and loving young lady - and my two doggies (Misty and Jango) absolutely agree! They have gotten to know her well and I can highly recommend her!
