Have been an animal lover all my life, currently own two Beagles (3yrs & 12yrs old) and have experience walking and caring for larger dog breeds like Boxers, Whippets, Labradors, and Great Danes. I have also cared for small to medium sized native and domestic birds in the past, as part of a shelter service. I have cared for cats before, although I have yet to own one. I am quite comfortable with all kinds of house pet. (incl. reptiles, rats, rabbits) No experience with aquatic pets.
