Experience with animals and own pets

From a very young age, much to my parents apprehension, I always brought home stray animals, which ranged from rabbits; hamsters; dogs; and cats. As I got older my passion for caring about animals has only grown stronger and I’ve added fresh and salt water fish, chickens, and horses to my list of animals that I adore and have cared for.

I have also aided in the fostering process of 4 mix breed puppies and taken care of other people’s dogs as if they were my own. My training experience with dogs include teaching them basic commands and a few tricks using positive reinforcement and clicker training. I have trained dogs of all ages, including young puppies and older dogs. I have also done groundwork training with horses and given horse riding lessons to children from the church community.

Currently I own two mixed breed dogs. One is a medium sized Labrastaff and the other is a large Boerboel ridgeback mix. They are my snuggle buddies even though they both have very different personalities. I enjoy taking my Labrastaff on car rides with me and entertaining my Ridgeback Boerboel with some of his favourite toys.
