Experienced Parrot And Dog Lover
I'm passionate about Avian science and behavior. Parrots are beautiful, intelligent beings with their own unique personalities, just like us! I have my own feathered-child, an African Grey parrot who is very lively and very intelligent, and I have previous experience caring for birds and parrots. I understand these highly intelligent creatures and their needs; the foods they can and can't have; I know how to handle them with love and tone of voice and language. I have experience with re-homed birds and birds with a bit of "attitude" and I've watched bird training videos and post often on parrot site boards.
Regarding dogs, I've owned dogs since childhood. I did volunteer work with Guide Dogs for the Blind, Inc. and worked with socializing dogs. I am a great dog-walker and playmate for a dog, so I am more than excited to assist in working with dogs. Since I've worked closely with Guide Dog trainers and Guide Dogs for the Blind, I know what to feed dogs and how to handle them. I love dogs!
I have a bachelors degree and years of professional working experience. I'm a Christian, loyal and trustworthy, drug and smoke free, professional appearance, clean background check, and excellent driving record. Please contact me with any questions! I would love to interview and provide background checks upon request.
