About J.B.
Howdy!! I'm J.B., and I'm a doctor of veterinary medicine student at Sydney Uni. Before starting my current studies, I worked for several years taking care of animals staying or undergoing treatment at veterinary clinics and an animal shelter. I moved to Sydney from the US for my studies, which unfortunately is not a trip any of my pets could make with me, so I've got a hole in my life that only caring for a furry companion can fill. Between my work experience and personal pets throughout my life, I have experience of varying degrees with dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, assorted pockets pets, some exotics, some freshwater aquatic species, and small livestock. For any type of animal that I don't have as much or any experience with, I will make great effort to learn beforehand about how to best take care of that beloved animal. Regardless of my level of experience, I will always precisely follow any directions or instructions given in order to help make everything as comfortable, normal, and minimally stressful as possible for every pet in their owners absence. I am open to taking care of any and every type of pet, but I do live in a small studio apartment, so my ability to potentially provide care at my residence is currently somewhat limited, especially in regards to large or energetic dogs. My given prices are primarily based on care for dogs, so they can potentially be adjusted to reflect the care requirements of different types of pets. I look forward to hopefully providing love and care to your pets!!
Please input the correct dates when requesting bookings, and please no last minute or day of bookings. I plan my day around my studies and various other obligations in advance, and often cannot change my plans at the last minute.

JB did a great job of sitting. Easy to get in touch with and flexible. Would definitely recommend him and would be happy to use his services again.

Thanks J.B for looking after Bullwinkle and Smudge so well. It was great to go on holidays and know my cats were being taken care of by someone who is competent and obviously loves animals.

Amazing job! 8 nights with two bulldogs, one still a pup. JB sent photos while away, and apartment was taken care of. The dogs didn’t want him to go! I can tell he bonded with the dogs, and is welcome any time. Look forward to having you back!
