Service Description
I firmly believe not only in the incredible fun aspect of being in the company of animals I also believe in the advanced spiritual connection that I believe they have with the universe.
The happiest times of my life have also almost always included the presence of animals, birds and other creatures.
I strongly believe in the empathetic, compassionate and practical caring of our furred and feathered friends.
I have always had the treasured gift of being able to guide and discipline animals when necessary (cats excluded of course)
Being a retired nurse I also believe strongly in a happy and hygienic environment for animals and always strive to reduce or eliminate any stress in their environment.
I live in the Berwick area but travel much around Melb. I would love the opportunity to care for and spend time in the company
of animals and do not have any preferences in this area. I love the aspect that dogs and cats are always in the "present moment"
and do not suffer from the vagaries of life that we as humans project in our constant worry about the past and future.
Hoping you find my profile acceptable .

Upon meeting Phillip I knew my dogs would be well looked after. He is warm and inviting and Opie who usually has anxiety around strangers was at peace with Phillip which is something that set me at ease. I highly recommend Phillip and would like to use him again. Thank you Phillip

Philip is the most delightful caring pet sitter we have ever had. Our dogs loved him and looked forward to him comming each time. He cared for them as if they were his own pets. We would highly recommend him to any further pet owners.

I'm a 65 year old retired male nurse who loves animals of all sorts. I have a medium sized unit with plenty of room for a smallish to medium issued animal. I have a life-time of experience in looking after animals from birds to dogs, cats, rabbits etc. I like to go out and about with animals and concentrate on their safety and comfort.
