Service Description
I am a kind, energetic, and honest young Irish woman who grew up on a farm in rural Ireland surrounded by animals my whole life.

Moved to Melbourne in 2010, living in an apartment across from Albert Park missing the animal (especially dog) interaction.

*Reduced rates for long term house-sitting arrangements - just contact me with a rough estimate and we can discuss

*For home stays I have carefully prepared my apartment in anticipation for pet sleepovers by moving breakables or "chewables" to higher ground, making electrical cords inaccessible to curious paws and noses, and I have put my shoes safely up in my closet!!

I have also created a comfortable area, where your lovely can go when he/she needs rest , a drink or privacy or just to ponder on something!

I love the outdoors and keeping fit, so regular walks will not be a problem; as we have the beach and Albert Park on our doorstep to explore!

Always had dogs, cats, sheep, cows, horses at home in Ireland throughout my childhood and into adulthood.

This means I can:

-PLAY! which provides an outlet for your pet's energy.

-Go On Walks (at least 2 a day) where we will enjoy exploring the neighbourhood and will benefit from the exercise.

-Talk to Your Pet

-Give Treats

-Love Your Dog or Cat

-Take him/her to the park or on outings to the beach.

-Give a Massage

-Ease Separation Anxiety

-Teach basic commands

-Provide you with regular update messages & photos

**Reduced rates for long term house/pet sitting; all assignments considered**

Thanks Gem for taking good care of my little one. She was very relaxed with you and the updates were proof too. Thank you again :)

Not sure who had more fun, Gemma or Milly. Gemma is an absolute doll, took exception care of Milly (even let her sleep on the bed!), took her for walks, played with her and generally just did an awesome job. I can tell she loves Milly (who wouldn't) and I look forward to calling on Gemma again!
