My name is Ireta (i-ree-duh). I am 26 years old from the USA. Pets and travel are everything to me. I am here on the working holiday visa, but hope to make wonderful Australia my permanent home.
** At this time I am only able to travel within Byron Bay, Sunrise/Industrial Arts district, Lilli Pilli, & Suffolk Park
I have a Master of Education degree from Iowa State University with a focus in university administration/student affairs. I also have a bachelor’s degree in Family Science & Spanish.
I grew up in a house with at times 3-5 cats, a rabbit, and a shih tzu dog. I also grew up with friends and family who had large dogs! I cannot imagine a life without animals. They give me some of the greatest joy in life. The thing I miss most when traveling is always having a pet around, so I am very excited about starting work as a pet sitter again in Australia. I have used a different company before in Melbourne to pet sit!
I love pets of all types and breeds. Your pet will be treated as my own and more. I am also familiar with pets with specific needs (i.e. medications, diet, nervous pets, sensitive to loud noises) so a Pet with special needs is no problem at all!
Services I Offer:
Walks - If your dog is used to a specific length of time for their walks I should be able to accommodate that. I would plan by default though for walks to be between 25-40 minutes.
Home Visits - I would plan for home visits to be around 30 minutes. Enough time to make sure a dog has been let outside, and that they have food and water or whatever your pet‘s specific needs may be. And of course I hope to spend a majority of the time giving them attention! :)
Overnight Stays - I am also more than happy to stay overnight with pets if that is your/their need or preference!
As of right now all of my services will be done at your home. I can bring animals to my house for a brief visit, but not overnight. I hope to find a living situation in the future however that will allow me to have pets at my home as well.
I cannot wait to meet you and your fur baby! ...

House Visiting - Sep 16, 2020
Highly recommend! Ireta went above and beyond to ensure our parrot, Chilli, was well looked after. They bonded quickly and we felt at ease leaving him in her care. Thanks again, Ireta! :)…
