I am a 27 year-old with a pristine record and current Police Clearance who has extensive experience being trusted with the care of pets and personal property. For the past two years I have supplemented my regular job as a dance teacher by being a professional dog walker, pet sitter, and house-sitter. An animal lover originally from Anchorage, Alaska, I have recently moved to Perth to be closer to my partner, who works a FIFO schedule in the mines. I am here on a Work and Holiday Visa with the goal to work and save as much as I can. I am seeking additional casual work doing one of my most favourite things- caring and giving love to pets!
I worked for an agency called Anchorage Dog Walkers from 11/2014-11/2015, and through them built a network as an independent house-sitter.
As a dog walker I provided daily attention and exercise to dogs who were home alone while their owners were working or on holiday. I was trained to specialise in dogs who lack social skills or could use improved manners, and followed a program personally developed for each individual dog to walk politely with a variety of dogs in multiple settings and to provide them with a social outing where they felt comfortable and relaxed, not afraid or anxious. I learned to always be prepared for constantly changing circumstances, including a variety of weather conditions- a walker must always be watching for signs of fatigue and know which appropriate measures to take to avoid overheating, dehydration, or illness. I was trusted to enter client’s homes while they are away and follow specific instructions regarding the care of their dog. Through house-sitting I also have experience caring for cats, small rodents, birds and aquariums. I will put all of my experience to use in the loving care of your pets.
