My name is Viv. Since the age of thirteen I've had dogs and cats whom I've taken care of. I still do look after the dog of a friend every week, and after the two cats of my daughter. All I really can say is that I’m very good with animals and they respond very well to me. I'm also a very caring and a very reliable, responsible person. I dearly love animals, all animals. I'm vegetarian, and I actively follow petitions that protect animal rights and aim to improve their living conditions. I'd love to help a busy pet owner out by going for walks with and play with their dog so they can get the stimulation they need. I've taken care of many different breeds of dogs, at my own home whilst owners are away for longer periods of times, or I’ve looked after pets at the owners home. Breeds I've taken care of before range from Labrador, Picardian Shepherd, Poodle, Sharpei, Dutch Shepherd, French Bulldog…all kind of dogs of different sizes, ages and personalities! I am also a member of Dogbuddy and can give you details of pet owners who will be able to give you a reference. I hope to meet you and your pet soon.
