Experience with animals and own pets

I love animals and have looked after the homes and pets of friends in the past.

I am lucky to share my life with 2 dogs and 4 Ringneck parrots. Both our doggies are very energetic - the one is a Labrador and the other a Jack Russell Terrier cross (extremely feisty for her size!).

I hand-reared one of the parrots - I am proud to say that he has now been with me for 5 years. I taught him how to speak, and to my surprise, he taught the others!
