Experience with animals and own pets

I have always had a passion for animals! I have had a fish, a hamster, a cat and dogs throughout my life.

Right now, I have two dogs. My fur babies are a Cocker spaniel named Rosie and a Dachshund called Petal, both with very unique personalities. They bring so much happiness to my life… even when they do things like pee on my bed!

I understand how important it is to know your fur babies are well taken care of when you go away, to have peace of mind and be able to enjoy your holiday. Even though I don’t have other pets I love going to my best friend’s house and playing with her cats (my jealous Dachshund and anxious Spaniel prevent me from having my own).

I also love to go Horse Riding and regularly donate to conservation programs to help save our endangered wildlife as well as charities like Wetnose and Santa Paws.

My entire family are animal-lovers and I have been taught from a young age to protect and care for animals as they cannot do so for themselves.
