About Caitlin
Services offered:
Dog Walking: $25
I take your dog on a walk, simple as that! Any basic training is also done, such as waiting at roads and desensitisation to strange objects and sounds. I try to take a different route every time, and let your dog explore all the strange new smells he finds. If the weather is too hot, I'll usually spend my time doing some fun enrichment activities with your animal instead. I am more than happy to walk nervous, reactive or otherwise 'difficult' dogs.

House Visit: Starts at $15 per visit
I check on your pet, and make sure they are doing ok. You might be going on holiday and need your cats looked after, or are being held back at work and your dog has been alone for a while. I'm open to doing whatever needs to be done.

Pet Day Care (3-4 hours): $60
A fun-filled day with me! Perhaps you are going out to dinner and need someone to watch the new puppy for a couple of hours, or your pet simply deserves a special day! There is endless possibilities but we will definitely take a long walk or two, play with some toys and do some exciting enrichment activities.

Dog Training (One hour) $30
I'm NOT a dog trainer (my prices reflect this). While I have trained numerous dog reactive dogs, nervous and 'problematic' dogs, I'm not comfortable enough to train your reactive dogs in a professional setting. However I'm happy to provide training, especially for puppies, on basic things and minor behavioural problems.


I honestly can’t remember a single time in my life where animals haven’t been a part of my life. It’s not just living with animals, but addressing their every need and giving them the best life possible. The ultimate reward for me is getting to see creatures of all sizes grow and thrive with the highest quality of care.

I'm happy to pet sit anything, truly! I have spend time with dogs of all shapes and sizes, as well as dogs of all abilities. I have owned dogs with special needs that require medication. I have also owned dog-reactive canines, and I am more than comfortable handling and training dogs with other behavioural issues (including separation anxiety). I can also work with cats, any cat who either loves me back or hates me. I currently work with abused pet reptiles, I am more than comfortable getting scratched, bitten and chewed on. I have also lived with many other pets, including Parrots, Chickens, Guinea Pigs and Rabbits. I know the tendencies of these animals, as well as their intricate needs.

My focus is on both mental and physical exercise. I want engage their minds as well as their muscles. I have a number of different enrichment games to play on a visit, suitable for a wide variety of species. I want to make sure your animal gets the most out of its time with me.

This is the second time Caitlin has looked after my elderly cat and it won't be the last time as I know he is well looked after in my absence. Highly recommend Caitlin.
