***Please note, I am moving to Tasmania at end March and therefore will not be available for pet care in the ACT after March***
Hi! I am a 35 year old animal lover with a Bachelor in Zoology.
Due to rental regulations I cannot have pets in my home, so I fill my need for furry hugs by walking and sitting for others. I regularly pet-sit for friends when they travel for work or holidays, and in 2018/19 spent 9 months house/pet sitting around Europe. I have cared for dogs, cats and birds over the last ten years. I have yet to meet the animal that I don't get on with, and am open to caring for the more unusual pet if needed, as long as suitable instructions are provided. Please message me to discuss your pet's requirements.
I work full-time during the week, however my short commute means that I am available for early morning and late afternoon visits and walks. The length and time of any walk will be tailored to your pet and their unique requirements. If your fur-baby just needs some company while you're away, I will drop by to play and cuddle, as well as the standard feed, water and poo-pickup. If you will be gone for a longer time period, your pet is prone to pining, or you don't like the idea of your house sitting empty, I am also available for house-sitting. I will care for your pet and your house while you are away (bins taken out, mail collected, pool filter turned on etc). In my experience, your pet will eat better, experience less stress and be calmer when allowed to stay in their own home rather than a kennel or cattery.
I am happy to provide photos by email, WhatsApp or text message and keep you updated on your pet's wellbeing. If you send a booking request through, we can arrange a meet-and-greet before confirming. Once I accept your request through the website, you will be prompted for payment. Madpaws release's this to me at the end of the sit, once you've confirmed that it took place.
Feel free to contact me with any other questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
