I have always wanted to work with animals I have previously done a 2-week work placement at Diggidy Doggy Day Care and I loved it. I've also grown up in a family who fostered both dogs and cats for the local pound so I've had experience with lots of different breeds. I've been job searching this year and haven't had much luck but when I found Madpaws it just seemed perfect. I'd to always have a meet and greet with new people and their animals before any bookings are made so I can know about your animal's health history, behaviors, and any special requirements.
Because of my living arrangement, I can not have pets of my own for the moment, so I'd love to look after other people's pets. I do not have my P plates yet so, for now, I'm using public transport to travel, I should have all my hours done for my Ls sometime this year.
I'm great with dogs or cats of any size or breed and I've had rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and fish as well as cats and dogs in the past so I'm competent and willing to care for all sorts of animals.
I have a basic understanding of dog training, so I am happy to work with dogs on anything you've previously been doing with them. I'm also happy to bath dogs but I've had no training in grooming so I won't clip their fur. I'm hoping in the future to do dog grooming and training courses and have my house and backyard set up so I can look after dogs here. I can not look after cats in my own home because of others here with allergies.
