Experience with animals and own pets

Good Day, “Fury Hooman Lovers”.

My Name is Mitchell Jon Pallatte, I have been house sitting/ Pet Sitting other people animals for almost 2 years now, while I have been enjoying my Studies at University studying a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. I am a father to two beautiful Labradors, and 3 Cats who own me :)

I strongly believe our furry friends choose us as their family members, I enjoy taking my Labradors “Bella” & “Cooper” to the dog park as often as possible where they can play in the water and run free with other pup’s. My girlfriend and I often plan picnic dates with our dogs where we interact with them by playing ball, swimming and running. It sure is a fun filled day out with our “Furry Friends”.

None-the-less I am very passionate about animals and their well-being, I know it’s very important to meet a house sitter that you can trust, that will provide the same love and attention as what they would receive from their Favourite “Hoomans”.

Additional Comments:

It was a bit of a concern that my dads birds were not fed correctly and the dogs outside water bowls were bone dry.

Other than that the dogs absolutely adored Mitchell and they were spoilt rotten, haha we will definitely be having to do a few more longer walks this week to get off all those extra treats.
