I am a gentle-natured and experienced animal caretaker. I have 2 dogs of my own and feel that I am a genuine dog person. I love cats too but don't have any. I help many of my friends take care of their dogs and cats. I have worked for 15 years with captive nature center animals like birds, opossums, lizards, snakes, turtles and more. I have had dogs (mostly large ones of various breeds) for 25 years. I have never groomed animals, however.
