About Vicky
I would care for your pet/s as my own. I consider myself friendly, punctual, reliable and have a lot of love to give to my fur friends. I promise to look after them with top-notch quality care and love, giving them lots of hugs and cuddles each and every minute I have with them, etc. You can be rest assured that they will be in the safest hands. Friends and family call me the "pet whisperer" - somehow most animals are drawn to me. I grew up with animals my whole life from small to big, from fish to turtles, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, cats, dogs etc.

I am from Singapore but been in Australia a long time i.e. over 20 years since high school, and have always been a fan of Dr. Chris on Bondi Vet. Ever since I was little, I already had a little mini Dachshund with me. I have a little pet of my own - a rescue cat who is very affectionate and is okay having other animals around. She is only afraid of really large dogs, so I would prefer to have small to medium-sized dogs come to stay with us (if you choose the pet hosting option). I have a little boy who would adore to have himself more furry companions I'm sure. Pretty sure hubby doesn't mind either.

We have a fully fenced garden and very safe and enclosed courtyard. We also live opposite a park where dogs can be unleashed in the specified areas. We are also not far from the beach. Your dog/s will have a lot of space to run around in the garden should I need to duck out for a little while; it is very secure and the house is fenced all around with no gaps. I am happy to take them for their regular walks around the block or to the park across the road, as well as to the vet for their check-ups, and confident to administer small amounts of medication if required, etc. I will update you with daily pics of your furry companion while you are away (to ease your mind). Happy for your pet to sleep inside / outside but you would need to provide your own bedding / food / treats / their comforts. I would tend to bring your furry companion indoors if the weather is too harsh and ensure they are nice and comfortable with lots of blankets and love. If indoors, we would prefer if your pet isn't teething / chewing excessively at the moment as we have delicate furniture around the house; we also have our cat and our little boy, so we would need some security gates / barrier (would love if you can provide or we can use the play pen gates as a barrier for our hall downstairs). Outside is preferable, however, we can chat and arrange something that could work around your furry friend and you. I am able to work with your pet's routines / schedules / find out your pet's loves and dislikes through the course of their stay, whatever is needed to make sure they are comfortable and chirpy.

I have taken care of pets as favors from friends and via word of mouth over the last 5 years. Looking after animals always makes my day and makes me smile. It's my dream hobby and passion to be able to work with animals on the side. I love it and would do it more if given the opportunity. I am planning to undertake a dog grooming course in the next few years once my toddler is a bit older too. =) I hope I get to meet your furry friend and that you would choose me as your sitter! I assure you wouldn't be disappointed.

Vicky is great, Thea had her second stay and loved it! We could go out of town with confidence that she was getting looked after in a safe environment.
