I've had animals all my life. Currently I have 1 cat Sadi 19yrs, 4 dogs Dixie 10 yrs, Layla 5yrs, Roxy 11yrs and Nelly 1yr and Matilda a ball python 3yrs. I recently adopted Roxy and Nelly from the animal shelter I work at. I've been there right at a year.
I have always wanted to work with animals, and now I finally do. It is the hardest job by far, I love every minute of it. Being in the shelter I have gained experience with wide spectrum of dog breeds, sizes and temperament's.
Other than finding homes for homeless pets of course, my favorite part is coming up with new and creative ways to provide enrichment for our shelter pets. Mental stimulation will do more for a animal than physical activity. I truly love it just as much as the dog does.
I will come to your home play with your pet's. I imagine that I will bring along some type of enrichment depending on my length of stay. I can perform baths and light grooming, dispense medications.
