My parents have always had dogs since I can remember, everything from Rottweilers to little Border Terriers. As kids we had hamsters, bunnies and goldfish. I love being around animals and caring for them. I have been a pet sitter for 4 years now. My first pet sitting job was housesitting and looking after 2 huge dogs for 5 weeks which I loved. My most recent sitting was for a gentleman in the navy for whom I dog and house minded for 3 months. The only downside to pet sitting is falling in love with the animals and having to say goodbye.
