I am a huge animal lover, and am keen to look after any animal, big or small, hairy, feathered or scaly! I have no pet allergies and while I would prefer small-medium sized breeds, I have owned large/strong breeds such as Marimers (Italian Sheepdogs) and American Staffordshire terriers and am happy to care for them.
I will walk all dogs twice a day, and make sure your pets receive adequate mental stimulation along with all the TLC they can handle!
Pets of my own include my puppy-dog Winn-Dixie, an incredibly naughty but incredibly loving Labradoodle; my Indian Ring-neck parrot Jerry (who turned out to be a lady- oops!) is quite cheeky and loves to fly on my shoulder and demand his breakfast tax! I also have a cat called Casper who is very well-tempered, playful, and loves to cuddle (however, he lives at my dad's). Lastly I have several tropical fish. I did name them all at one point but it's hard to keep up with them all!
I have had animals as long as I can remember, and not once has our house been empty of them! Our yard is small, but it has access to shade, is fully fenced, and is extremely close to several dog friendly parks. I also often visit dog friendly beaches so that is also an option if your dog is comfortable in the car. Don't worry- we'll keep you fully updated on your beloved pets!
Unfortunately due to the fact that I have an uncaged bird, I cannot have cats at my house (though I am more than happy to visit yours!), but dogs are more than welcome as both Winn-Dixie and Jerry get along well with other pets. If your dog is territorial or aggressive to other dogs I cannot have them at my house, but again, I am happy to come over and watch them at yours!
I have had experience with the following breeds:
- Staffordshire Terrier
- Mixed breeds
- Indian Ringneck
- Green-cheeked Conure
- Chickens (Sussex and Rhode Island reds)
- Rabbits (several breeds including Netherlands Dwarf Rabbit)
- small tropical fish like guppies and tetras.
- the usual suspects like goldfish, beta fish, banana snails and catfish.
