Experience with animals and own pets

Calling me an animal lover would be an understatement, I have 7 of my own dogs including 4 jack Russells, 2 Bassets and a Beagle. I love to spend my spare time with them whether it be running around the garden throwing the ball or cuddling on the couch I’m the happiest when I am with them.

Most of my time is invested in making sure my animals are happy and enjoying life. My dogs are rescue dogs and each one of them has such amazing personalities My gran has an elderly cat who I have looked after many times, we enjoy sitting in the sun while I drink a cup of tea and study.

I also work at a vet part-time where I see and deal with a lot of animals from dogs to fish to stray cats. I am very invested in my work there and enjoy building relationships with the animals and their owners. .

I have house sat before where I looked after two excited and loving Labradors and a white house cat who enjoyed having her tummy being tickled every afternoon. My duties included feeding them and making sure they had fresh water. I also spent quality time with the dogs by throwing their ball for them.
