About Kylie
About me: Hello! Growing up in the country, I had several pets throughout my childhood including - dogs, cat, horses (6), goats (2), rabbits, guinea pigs, birds (mainly budgies), lizards, mice (rescued from the Science department at High School), chickens, bantams, fish and tadpoles (caught from a pond). My dad had a friend who kept snakes and crocodiles, so I have a love of all creatures great and small. I have gelled with all types of animals and reptiles, in fact, I really love lizards and miss them. As an adult I have owned a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross and a Chow Chow, was given a turtle and caught a yabbi. As you can see, my exposure to many different animals is extensive.

I adore all animals and I'm happy to look after your pet anytime. As I live in the city and in an apartment now, I really miss the company of pets, so I can only have fish. I love fish, but they are not as easy to look after as people may think and I crave to be in the company of the more 4 leg friend variety.

I live in Carnegie and my postal box is in Glen Huntly, so I'm looking for pet visiting/feeding/walking around this area or if it is an overnight pet/house sit, I am happy to travel up to an hour. I currently work part time, so I have plenty of time to spend with your pets. I am looking for a range of different tasks such as pet feeding, pet walking and pet/house sitting. Happy to give all the attention and cuddles your pets need (if they don't want cuddles, happy to leave pets be if they prefer).

I hold a current police check (issued 11/01/2017) which is valued for 3 years and a Working With Children Check (expires August 2022) and I am able to produce hard copies or send electronic copies for reference. I have completed the online Mad Paws training and have had experience in administering medication and applying lotions and ointments to pets. I take my pet sitting business seriously and there are a lot of people in it for the wrong reasons. To show my dedication to this industry, I have just completed an RSPCA Accredited Pet Sitting Course as well as installed the First Aid for Pets (Australia) app on my mobile phone for easy reference. I have completed the RSPCA Pet First Aid and Pet CPR as of 09/03/17 and I'm confident in performing First Aid on your pet if required. For references, I have several hard and electronic copies from other pet owners or child minding services. I have an array of additional services I can provide to your pets.

Respect for your house, property, belongings and pets are my number one priority and this is what makes me trust-worthy, reliable and responsible. I have a personal policy of no friends/family or others in your home while I reside there. I am also a non-smoker and I don't drink. This will make you feel even more comfortable about me being in your home.

When I stay in your home, I am happy to perform house sitting duties such as checking mail, taking in or out the bins, giving the plants a water, sign off on parcels etc. I clean up after myself, making sure your home is exactly the way you left it.

For dog walking only, I prefer areas around Carnegie/Murrumbeena and nearby suburbs like Ormond, Bentleigh/Bentleigh East, Chadstone, Oakleigh, Hudgesdale, Caulfield/Nth/Sth/East, Malvern East, Ashburton etc - as to walk a dog once or twice a day can be too much travel if I have to go too far. If this is the case, I would prefer to live in for duration of your holiday/business trip if I need to walk your pet often and/or you live too far.

Feel free to drop me a line and say hi and we can discuss how best to accommodate your pets. Look forward to meeting you and your family (pets).

In my own home, I can only accommodate a small bird, bugs/beetles, lizard or fish due to small apartment and no courtyard (on first floor), I can not take any cats, dogs, rabbits etc.
Feel free to contact me with questions. Happy to be used as a back up sitter, if your appointed sitter is sick, has a personal emergency or away on holidays.
Please note: I am free for pet sitting for the upcoming Winter school holidays. I am currently unsure of my movements in late December for the Xmas/New Years period and can not take bookings for that period at this time. Thanks.

It was great to have Kylie taking care of Snoop again for the last 15 nights. The house was clean and Snoop has been a very happy boy! Kylie also kept us posted each day!
