Service Description
Hey! I'm long time animal lover eager to give your furbabies lots of love when you're not available to. I am eager to help you out as it means I get to spend time with animals when I am not able to own one myself ( I travel far too often). My schedule is very flexible as I am currently doing freelance graphic design work, so pet sitting and walking is another perfect way to incorporate something I am passionate about into additional income. I am also new to Melbourne and looking forward to getting to know the area by dog walking and pet sitting.

Hello. In the past 5 Years I've had Ivy watch my Siberian husky "Wolfy" several times. Some cases for over a week. Wolfy is not by any means an easy dog. I always felt comfortable knowing that he was in good hands! Ivy would send picture updates of whatever adventure they were on at the moment, and phone calls daily! I'm taking the time to write this in hopes that ivy gets plenty of future work in this field because she truly is a good pet sitter and an animal lover!

Ivy is kind and loving to any dog that comes into her arms or crosses her path as if it were here own. When I was working, she would walk my brindle Pitt bull Ashanti and play with her in our backyard and give her lots of treats and love. She has experience with dogs big and small, and knows how to discipline when the time is right and reward at the right times. She is trustworthy and I would recommend ivy to pet sit any dog that came across her path!

I am a recent university graduate on a four month holiday in Melbourne looking for additional (flexible) work before I head off to grad school.
