Experience with animals and own pets

As a pet enthusiast, I strongly believe in the joy that animals can bring to a family. Our family is joined by two Rottweilers, Roxy and Brutus, and I love them to death! Roxy just turned 5 and Brutus is still trying to catch up at 7 months old. Playing fetch or walking around the neighborhood is part of our daily routine and every day is a different story with these energetic dogs. I am part of a Day House at the University and we regularly volunteer at the Tshwane SPCA. I have experience in looking after the pets and homes of family and friends. Through this, I know I am a capable individual when it comes to caring for animals and having fun whilst doing it.
