I grew up on a huge farm in New Zealand, with dogs, cats, cows, sheep, bunny rabbits, guinea pigs and even pet mice! I've always had a natural bond with animals and I have a special connection with dogs, they seem to warm to me right away.
I regularly spend my time volunteering with rescue animals, and through this I've learned so much about animal behaviours. I also teach yoga and have a relaxed, calm energy which allows me to connect with animals soon after meeting.
I set healthy boundaries with pets and I always keep dogs safely on a lead, unless you specifically tell me where and when is safe to let them roam free.
I'm active, fit and healthy and love taking dogs for walks, although I'm just as happy to snuggle up with a good book or a movie and spend quality time with your cat or dog as needed.
I get along great with all animals and I'm very comfortable with dogs, cats, rabbits, fish and birds.
I have a very flexible work-life balance - I work for myself and can spend extra time with your pets during the days.
I'm happy to come to your place, or to take care of your fur baby during the day. I have my own pet-friendly car so I can take your dog to the park for a nice long walk - and I can transport your cat or dog to and from the vet, the groomers, a fluffy playdate, or anywhere else they need to go.
I have heaps of references, so get in touch and see if I'm the right fit for your special furry family member!
PS. the website only lets me set standard hourly rates - this doesn't usually include pickups or drop offs, and if you're interested in half day / full day / overnight / regular walking dates please send me a message :) ...

Pet Sitting - Jun 26, 2019
Our puppy had a great time! We would welcome Yvonne to our home any time.
My very precious Milo just had the most AMAZING day with Yvonne! He is a mini dachshund and can be fussy as to who he spends time with but Yvonne completely won his heart. I recommend her to take beautiful care of your pet! 🌟…
