Are you going away on holidays and need someone to watch your home and animals? I am your answer.

Not only do I care for dogs, but I also have tons of experience with cats, rabbits, fish, chickens, horses and cows. I will exercise your dogs, take in your mail and water your plants. I am very clean, trustworthy and respectful of your home and have great references if required.
