Cat Owner And Dog Lover
I have had dozens of pets throughout my life, mostly cats and dogs (it doesn't go without mentioning the turtle, rabbit, hamsters, or birds), as well as being the proud owner of two beautiful cats currently. I also have quite a bit of experience with horses!
Until I have the resources to care for a dog of my own, I pine over my friends many dogs and my brother's black lab. Several of my friends have adopted dogs from shelters, in which case they can be very shy or anxious. I feel comfortable around these animals and have learned about the delicate nuances of particular pets.
Though typically paid as a babysitter, nanny or early childhood teacher, I have been a house and pet sitter for many families, most recently a family a nannied for who owned an older yellow lab.
