Experience with animals and own pets

I absolutely love animals - of all shapes and sizes! Although I do not have any pets of my own (it is not by choice I assure you!), I have looked after many dogs of friends and family before.

My partner had a beautiful Pekinese named Coco, and before her passing I loved giving her cuddles and reading with her snoring on my lap.

I have also looked after a wonderfully kind Bull Dog named Chloe and an energetic, deaf, Maltese-cross called Echo - whom I adore visiting and sitting by when studying.

In my profile picture, you will see my Uncle's two dogs, Levi and Lexi, who are affectionate, playful puppies who love lying next to me at night watching my favorite TV series.

I also have experience with reptiles (snakes especially). In the past, I have volunteered at the South African Guide Dogs Association. I can't wait to meet your wonderful animals!

Robyn was a student at our school for three weeks during which time I was her mentor and worked with her closely. Throughout her time with us I saw Robyn on a daily basis and found her to be reliable and responsible. Her lessons were always meticulously planned and extremely well prepared reflecting her determination to give of her best at all times. She was always well groomed and the students responded well to her easy going but firm manner in the classroom.
