About me

I live at home with my family and a 10 year old male Australian Kelpie called Ben. The house has a large back garden which is fenced and my area is surrounded by plenty of green areas and dog parks.

I have always wanted to work with animals they are all so loving and deserve the best care there is to offer.

I am currently studying as a Level 3 Teaching assistant apprentice working specifically with children who have additional and complex needs.

I work Monday-Friday until 6pm and I have half terms and weekends off.

Qualifications

I achieved a Distinction* Level 3 Advanced Technical Diploma in Animal Management after studying for 2 years in 2020.

At college I worked with a variety of different animals from domesticated to exotic and small mammals.

I have extensive knowledge about animal behaviour, well-being, training, diet and enrichment and I hope I'll have opportunities to show my skills.

I also did work experience at a local dog hydrotherapy company working with dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds from 2018-2020.

              I personally board rats for other people but finding someone to look after my girls was going to be hard, but Jen looked after my girls so well last time we went away that using her again was a no brainer.

              I got regular photos and updates, clear communication at all times whilst we were away and I enjoyed my holiday a lot more knowing that my girls were safe with Jen.

              We have two new babies who are so small but must have human contact to keep their confidence up and Jen made sure of that, she also made sure my old lady rat was kept an eye on too.

              We are away again in September and I have no hesitation in asking Jen again to care for my girls.

              Thank you Jen, we are very grateful as always.

              Leaving our 9 rats with a complete stranger was a big thing for us but Jen rose to the challenge, listened to all my instructions, sent me photos, and made going on holiday a pleasure rather than a worry. I will definitely be using her again when we next go away as I know my girls are safe with Jen and are well looked after.

              9 rats is a bit like having 9 toddlers running around a room at the same time and having no control over what they're doing or their behaviour but it seems Jen kept calm and sorted out any minor disagreements that our girls do have. Chuck in, just for good measure, an additional needs rat that needs extra food and time to eat separately away from the other girls and you end up with complete chaos but Jen did not seem to worry about that and all my girls seemed very settled with her.

              Thank you Jen for taking such good care of our girls, I think they were quite disappointed when I came home!
