Name of sitter: Reinhardt K

Experience with animals and own pets

I have lived with pets my entire life! They have mostly been dogs - with the occasional canary to keep us company!

Our doggie children have included various small breeds, and we currently share our family with two 12 years old Yorkshire Terriers. They are in great health for their age!

I have cared for many larger breeds while looking after friends' houses and used to care for zoo animals as a participant in the zoo's educational courses.
