Hi my name is Kate I am 24 year old student. I have been around animals all my life and worked within the pet industry in a highly regarded independent pet shop in Canberra for almost 3 years (2016-2019). I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science via distance.
I have owned fish, birds, a dog, a cat and horses. No animal is too big or too small for me. I have a cert III Companion animal qualification and with my pet shop experience, I have been exposed to all types of pets and love 8-week-old puppies, senior dogs to 60 + kg dogs. I know how to clean and look after cold water and tropical tanks, handle birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, lizards, turtles and of course cats. I have personal experience with horses and farm animals as well.
I have experience walking dogs of all sizes and ages. Through my certificate, I know basic animal first aid and am confident giving any medications any animals may need. I have experience with basic dog training and knowledge of enrichment activities.
I have worked with rescue cats and dogs as well as blind/vision impaired and deaf dogs.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions
