Service Description
Hi, I am a very passionate animal lover and I am currently studying veterinary medicine. I am very knowledgeable about pet care and have pets of my own (2 dogs, a cat and a parrot). I am excited to help look after your furry family members while you are away on holiday or for business! I have experience with many species of animal, including cats, dogs, parrots, fish and small animals (like rabbits and rats). I also worked at an animal shelter, with cats and dogs for 2 years. At the moment I am able to have small dogs and other small animals stay at my home only, but am happy to visit and walk larger animals. I also have a valid and current national police check.

I am currently back at University. I am still available to pet sit but will be at uni for around 5hrs per day (Monday- Friday) if your furry family member is okay with this then I would love to have them come and stay with me! They will still get their daily walk and lots of cuddles. They will be kept inside when I am not there and my housemates who may be home (at different times then me) will be around to let them out to the toilet, so they will be left alone very minimally. They will also have doggy company, with my dog Teddy.

I am only available for doggy day care on the weekends as this service involves me being available the entire day.

Feel free to ask me questions :)

Thank you Kathryn for looking after Enzo at your home. I glad to hear that he fitted in well with your family of animals. Thank you for taking him on walks, as this is one of his favorite things to do. We hope to call on you again sometime soon for another home stay. Kindest Regards, Michele and Peter (and Enzo)

Kathryn did a wonderful job. I have two large dogs who can be a bit anxious and a handful at times. She handled them like a champ. I'd recommend Kathryn to anyone (in fact I've already recommended her to family who will be going away later this year....and I don't give recommendations out lightly. Will be calling on Kathryn again. Kylie

I am a full time veterinary student, so naturally I love animals. I am excited to look after other people's pets and will give them as much love and attention as I give my own animals.

I have a car for any reason I may need one. I also have a valid and... more
