Experience with animals and own pets

I have always had a passion for animals.

I have shared my life with fish, a hamster, a cat and several dogs. Right now, I have two dogs: My fur babies, a Cocker spaniel (Rosie) and a Dachshund (Petal) - both with very unique personalities! They bring so much happiness to my life.

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 cats, 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.
