Service Description
Hello! I'm a Film and Television student living in Northcote. I am on break from my studies this year so I am free all day every day to care for your pets as a full time job! I'm also a keen amateur photographer so you can expect plenty of high quality pictures if I'm caring for your pet while you are away.
I absolutely adore animals, especially dogs! We've always seemed to understand one another. I also love walking and being out in the sunshine and there are a lot of great dog-friendly walking trails and parks very close to the house.
I live with my partner, Jakob who also loves animals and we have a very gentle 6 year old male English Staffordshire Terrier who loves other dogs and long walks but can be kept separate if your pet prefers alone time or one-on-one interactions with people.

Review And Testimonials
Phoebe M.
Talana is a very attentive and generous person, her empathetic nature makes her the perfect pet sitter. She has looked after my pets many times and is consistently hardworking and diligent to my pets needs. She was even able to win over my very difficult, grumpy cat. Talana definetly loves animals and they love her right back.

Talana is a wonderfully kind and responsible dog lover with an equally friendly and energetic staffy called Doggett! These two love cuddles on the couch, long walks and playing fetch in nearby parks, and have plenty of room for another dog to be spoiled with cuddles and play time! I would definitely recommend her as a caring and trustworthy dog sitter!

Talana has a natural affinity with all animals, especially dogs. She has great empathy, sensing their needs and communicating calmly and effectively with them. Talana is experienced with many animals, from small dogs to big and from rabbits to lizards. She is honest, responsible and really enjoys the company of animals.
