Experience with animals and own pets

Honestly, I own a Zoo! With five dogs, of all shapes and sizes, they bring an abundance of joy into my life!

My pups range from a Toy Pom to Belgian Malinois! The two Belgian Malinois’ require a lot of attention, specifically 6AM frisbee sessions! I have had the pleasure of training my own pets fully.

Although I don’t have cats I my love for them isn’t any less, I honestly can’t resist their tiny paws!

I have experience in pet sitting, house sitting and half of a year of Aupairing in the States.

Additional Comments:

Absolutely amazing.

My dogs are both sickly and need to be fed frequently. When I got home they were in a better state, health and personality wise, then when I left them.

Monique is really amazing and she is very hands on.

I will only use her from hereon out!

She is highly recommended.
