I've had pets all my life. Ever since I can remember, starting with my first dog Ethel. She was a mix breed (about four different kinds). I have also had hamsters, guinea pigs, and even a rat for a short period of time. Last year I got a newborn puppy so I have also learned how to take care of and clean up after puppies. I have also had two cats and love them as well. Besides my personal experience in caring for pets, I have only one time been paid for taking care of someone else's pets - 2 dogs, a Scottish Terrier and a West Highland White Terrier. I performed all of the normal tasks of taking care of dogs - Letting them out to go "potty", cleaning up the yard afterwards, feeding them (on strict schedules, those ones) taking them on regular walks, and the funnest part - playing with them! Shortly after, I moved out of the area, so I was not able to watch their dogs again. If dogs get sick, I know to 1st clean up after them and maybe put them outside, and 2nd notify the owner and call the vet if necessary. Besides my knowledge of taking care of animals - specifically dogs, I just love them. I have always connected well with animals, and I am a huge dog lover. I also have experience taking care of cats, feeding, and changing litter boxes.
