About Christie

I'm patient, gentle pet sitter and able to look after your pet when you are away. Each pet is treated as if they were my own and are given care that is best suited to their individual needs. I am firm, but gentle with animals, using play and positive reinforcement training to make sure they always feel safe.

I know lots of good spots for walks both on and off lead. We even do trips to Altona dog beach on hot days. Walks are generally 30 - 45 minutes for senior dogs and puppies. All other dog walks are around 45 minutes to an hour. This does not include travel time if we are going to a dog park.

I have also had plenty of experience with cats and rabbits and can provide some basic grooming and play.

I'm also happy to give some oral medication to pets but do not have experience with needles. Also I have had plenty of experience giving critical care to rabbits.

For house visits, I'm happy to take in mail, put out the bins and water plants for no extra charge.

IMPORTANT: Multiple visits in a day for Daycare will have an extra charge of $10 per extra visit.

My location is Footscray, but I'm able to travel up to 15 minutes. So anywhere in Footscray, West Footscray, Seddon, North Melbourne, Maidstone, Flemington, Yarraville, West Melbourne and Kensington. (Port Melbourne, Sunshine, Ascot Vale for existing customers only).

All new customers need to do a meet and greet. Please give me your full address an hour before the meeting, and allow for at least 20 minutes for this so that your pet and I can get to know each other. Also, I can do key pick up and drop off before and after the booking if convenient.

Overnight pet sits are for EXISTING customers only. Sorry.
