Hi, I'm Lucy!
I absolutely love spending my time around all sorts of animals and would like to offer pet-sitting/minding and walking services to people in my area! I have a Certificate II in Animal Studies and am half way through my Diploma of Animal Technology at Box Hill Institute. My education has provided me with and tested me on all of the information on nutrition, enrichment, handling, training and care that I would need in order to look after a variety of different companion animals.
I have personal experience in owning many different types of pets, including dogs, cats, insects, crabs, birds, rodents and fish. I am very confident with dogs and cats of all sizes, rodents and rabbits, reptiles, insects and other creatures that some people may not be comfortable with. At home I have a dog, three rats, two cats and a budgie (this is why I do not offer pet sitting in my own home, as not all animals get along).
I have been trained in animal first aid as a part of my Certificate and can calmly handle an emergency if such a situation were to ever occur.
I absolutely adore animals of every kind and have the education and dedication required to ensure the best of care for them, so please consider me when looking for a suitable person to care for your animal family members!
I'd be happy to pet-sit in the Doncaster, Templestowe, Warrandyte and surrounding areas.
