My love for animals is my biggest plus. I've always felt an affiliation with animals of all sorts and i've grown up with a number of different animals (dogs, cats, frogs, lizards, guinea pigs, chinchilla). I had been vegan for over ten years which i think shows my level of respect for animals and the way they are treated or handled.
As someone who has always worked long hours and kept pets (most recently a terrier-cross puppy) I understand the value of having someone who understands that dogs need exercise and engagement throughout the day when we cannot be there. As I have been on the 'dog minder required' side of the fence for so long over the last few years I feel I understand exactly what is wanted/required from someone walking or sitting a dog.
**i work 4-5 days a week so am not available for the full days on the calender, however i am before and after my shift, usually 7-5, the website is very vague ie mon-fri, rather than specifying morning/afternoon availability for each day, sorry for any inconvenience**
