I'am an active 23 year old female.
I have been passionate about animals since a young age, and was raised with a menagerie of animals in my house.
I have experience with 'troubled' pets (i.e anxiety issues, abuse cases) and do not shy away from the challenge of earning an animals trust.
I love being outdoors with pets, and enjoy taking my own dog on hikes/to the dogpark, and would be very willing to do so with your own family member!
I can train your animal the basics (sit,paw,stay,gentle) if you should so desire - though this skill comes solely from having trained my own dogs.
I enjoy grooming pets, as I feel it reenforces trust and companionship between you and an animal.
I care deeply for the happiness and well-being, both mentally and physically of all animals, I view pets as family members first and animals second.
In our home, your dog would be treated like one of my own, and would receive at least an hour of outdoor exercise per stay and would be played and cuddled with while hanging out indoors.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MY DOG: My pup, Iggy is an Olde English Bulldogge of 9 months old. He is true to his puppy bulldoggy ways in that he is bumbly, boisterous, and LOVES to play. He is extremely friendly with dogs, and making new friends makes his rump wiggle like you wouldn't believe. Ideally, your dog would be receptive to an inquisitive, playful puppy, but I also respect that every animal has its limits (from 1 hour to 1 minute!) with babies of its kind and we don't allow a visitor dog to become exhausted or stressed by our frisky bulldozer. Smaller dogs are also closely monitored so as not to become overwhelmed by his bulk!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MY CAT: My cat is extremely dog-friendly - (constantly head-butting with love, and rubbing up against) and for this reason we do not accept non-cat friendly dogs into our home - It just doesn't seem fair to keep him isolated in his room, when he has so much love to give to anyone and anything (he even shows affection to inanimate objects - to the point he knocks a lot of things onto the floor!)
I greatly look forward to welcoming your pets into my my home!
