I understand that the demands of life can sometimes mean that we need a little bit of support in caring for our animal friends.
I'm excited to offer my services to those who are wanting a kind and loving person to walk, play, cuddle or just visit their pet/s while they are away at work or on holiday :-)\
All my life I have been a lover of animals - like many children I wanted to become a vet but alas, science was not my strong point! I have however worked on small scale farms (in New Zealand) and volunteered in animal shelters and wildlife rescue parks in South America. I have had many pets in my life including dogs, cats, mice, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, fish and even a goat!
I have two children (aged 5 & 7yrs) who love to assist me with dog walking/pet sitting (providing the animal is comfortable around children). I am most aligned with the LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) training approach and enjoy reading about the latest research in animal behaviour but have never persued formal education.
Currently we do not have any pets of our own as we moved to Perth in 2019 from New Zealand and want to be sure that this is our forever home beore commiting to a pet. For now I get my furry cuddles from the animals that I work with and it is such a pleasure. Caring for other peoples pets is incredibly rewarding and I think it's a wonderful way to build community!
I'm happy to meet in person to discuss your needs and to ensure that I'm the right fit for your fur baby.
Dog Walking - 30 minute walk in your local area.
Home Visits - I'll swing by to check on your pet (inc play, feed etc) and let you know how they are :-)
Doggy Day Care - Drop your pet off from 7am - 7pm for a full day of cuddles, walks and play. Overnight stays can be organised in advance.
I look forward to hearing from you!
