Southern River, Western Australia
Service Description
I am a final year veterinary medicine student in Murdoch University.
I have previously worked and volunteered as a Veterinary Technician/Veterinary Nurse for over 3 years so I am proficient with animal handling and most aspects of basic veterinary skills. I have experience in many pet-sitting jobs and as a kennel-helper for more than 3 years on top of my veterinary education at University.
I believe every task must be done to the best effort as veterinarians are trained to be meticulous and have compassion for their patients.
I am also very passionate in any animal-related work and improving animal welfare.

Marcus has been dog sitting for our 5 month old Shiba Inu puppy, Whisky. Given Shibas are quite a tricky breed to work with (smart and stubborn at the same time), Marcus has been great with him. Previously we were struggling with getting him to wear a harness, but through Marcus's patient guidance, Whisky has shown great improvement. Marcus keeps up open communication with us and is always available when we have questions. Would highly recommend Marcus to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy sitter for their pets!
