Experience with animals and own pets

I have three dogs in total. Two Jack Russells aged 11 and 8 and one Weimaraner who is 6. All of our dogs are female. Before them, we had two Dobermans that were also female, another Jack Russell and a Fox Terrier (both male). I also had a cat when I was younger, who I trained to never go outside the house.

We also had birds when I was young. I have more experience with dogs than with other pets and I love to train dogs to do basic things and to see how each breed responds to training. For fun, I love to take lots of pictures of and with dogs. My favourite breed is definitely a Doberman.

Please describe how you know this person:

We went to the same church. I had a cat that was very abused before she became part of my household. She did not like children or other people and would hide every time we had guests.

One day, Wilmari said that she will look after Kitty for us. The two of them connected immediately. If Wilmari was available and we wanted to go somewhere, she would house sit and look after Kitty for while we were away. She fed her, played with her and took her to the vet. As an animal sitter, she is caring, considerate and very reliable.

Additional Notes:

I must just add that you cannot ask for a better person to look after your animals or your house.
