Experience with animals and own pets

I have always grown up with pets being a part of my family, from birds, cats, dogs to even a tortoise!

I am so lucky to have 3 dogs, who I love dearly and who have brought so much joy into my home. I have a two-and-a-half-year-old female Jack Russell (Tequila), a one-and-a-half-year-old female Dachshund (Ellie) and an eleven-month-old male Dachshund (Dax). My favourite thing about my dogs is that they are all so different, have such unique personalities, and never fail to make me smile.

I love taking them for walks and playing catch with them at nearby fields, or in our back garden. They love being bathed and groomed and they absolutely adore cuddles!

I have experience looking after the homes and pets of family members and strangers, and I have volunteered at both Pretoria Dog Rescue and the SPCA. I love animals and I will always be sure to give your pets the love and attention they deserve.
