Experience with animals and own pets

I have had dogs through my whole life and currently have two beautiful Yorkies living with me (Chewbacca and Loki).

When I was younger I use to have a lot fresh water fish. Unfortunately, I've never had the pleasure of having a cat, because I live with some who is allergic, I've always loved them dearly!

Additional Comments: My maid had told me there was never water in the dogs bowls and when we arrived home all three water bowls was empty and completely dry.

Note from Studentco: Having fresh water available at all times is a basic duty expected of all sitters. We discussed the matter with Quintin and suggested that he always supplies additional water containers during the summer months when pets drink more than usual.
