Service Description
Hi there,

I believe all pet animals deserve a healthy dose of affection and exercise and since I do too, I am always on the lookout for cuddling and walking/running furry buddies! For the last 4 years I have been minding dogs of all sizes, cats of various degrees of craziness, the smartest pet rats, deadly fishes, cheeky chooks and even popcorning guinea pigs. The humans who called on me to take care of their pet babies appreciated me going the extra mile to make sure their pets come back to them stuffed with love, fit and fulfilled. The priority for me is your pets' happiness, respecting their biological needs and offer them the lifestyle that suits them best, whether it's cuddle and couch or fetch and run. I am used to administrate oral medication if needed, as well as patting and praising pooch with a silly voice (can't help it they're too cute).

A bit of background
I am passionate about wildlife conservation and photography (your pets won't escape my lens, camera shy or not!). I grew up in France and I have been living in Canada and New-Zealand before settling down in Australia 4 years ago. I was the proud human companion of 2 dogs and 2 cats for almost 16 years and I know how hard it is to leave your companion in good hands when you go traveling or busy with other commitments. Traveling every other year meant I could not bring the necessary stability for a pet of my own, so I particularly miss the caring of animals, their affection and their company and this is how I started minding pets from other families.
