About Nicole
I am a mature international student from Germany (half English, half German) and have been house and pet sitting ever since I came to Tasmania 3 years ago. I love animals and although I have no own home here in which I can look after them, I am happy to take care of your pets during the daytime (go for walks) or spend time with them and feed them at your home. I graduated from Uni in December where I was studying a business degree, but my dream is to one day become an animal communicator.

I don't have any pets of my own at the moment but most of my life have been living with cats and during my various house sitting arrangements here in Tasmania have had the opportunity to meet and look after quite a lot of awesome cats, dogs, fish and chickens!

I will walk your dog(s) wherever you would like me to - as I only moved to Launceston in November, I will rely on your experience and knowledge as to where the best spots for exercising your furry friends are! As I love walking and spending time in nature, walking dogs is a win-win situation for both of us :)

As there isn't an option to add scaled pricing in the rates section I just wanted to mention that the price of $20 for dog walking refers to a short walk of about 30 mins. The price then changes with the duration of the walk, so here are the scaled rates for that:

30 mins: $20
1 hour: $30
1.5 hours: $40
2 hours: $50

I look forward to meeting you and your pets :)

Nicole was the perfect pet sitter, she went above and beyond to make sure our pet cockatiel didn't miss us while we were away! She followed all of our instructions - including sending us lovely photos of him looking happy. Thanks Nicole!

Nicole house sat for us for a period of 4 weeks. During that time she looked after our two pets being Ella our chocolate Lab and Max the cat. Nicole did an excellent job with her pet sitting duties, taking Ella for long walks on a daily basis which made Ella very happy. Ella also lost some weight during her time with Ella - no mean feat for a lab!. We would be more than happy to recommend Nicole for any pet sitting duties.

Nicole looked after our young lab Sybil, our old cat Boris, and our house and gardens for about 3 months while we were travelling on a recent caravan trip around Australia. Nicole is very friendly and relaxed, and kept us well informed during our time away with photos and messages about how things were at home. In a word, as a pet sitter, house sitter, communicator and all-round person, Nicole is excellent!. Highly recommended!
