About Keisha
Please note: due to an overload of pet sitting and study commitments, I will only be accepting bookings from my existing clients for the next few months. I thank you for your understanding.

Hi all, I’m Keisha, a passionate pet sitter and vet student. I have been around animals my entire life and have been caring for them for as long as I can remember, particularly my family pets: Jessie the Blue Heeler x Rhodesian Ridgeback, Jasmine the Chihuahua x Chow Chow, many cats and tropical fish.
I started pet sitting when I was 17 and since then I have had the pleasure of looking after so many beautiful animals, including dogs of various breed, cats, fish, chickens, geese, rats and even sheep. As a vet student, I have gained experience with many species, including companion animals, horses, sheep, cattle, wildlife and domestic rodents. But perhaps the most important classes have been my lessons surrounding animal behaviour, including hands on experience with animals of various temperaments. These classes have been invaluable as a pet sitter, particularly when working with nervous or anxious pets. Additionally, I have also had experience with administering medications, however, at this stage I am most comfortable with oral and topical medications (though I am happy to discuss administering injections if they are required). As an aid to my education at vet school, I have also done numerous online courses on animal health and care through Holly and Hugo.

Being a vet student has given me valuable skills in animal care and as a pet sitter, I strive to utilise these skills to make sure your pets are happy and very well cared for.

Pet Sitting - Jun 21, 2021
Keisha was amazing 🤩 She came to our house beforehand to meet our 2 dogs and understand our routine! Both dogs loved her straight away even tho one of ours is anxious around strangers! Keisha stayed at our house for 4 days/nights while we went to KI, she kept us posted the whole time, dealt with tricky behaviours and showed so much love to them! We couldn’t be happier, thanks so much!

I cannot recommend Keisha highly enough - she took excellent care of my old animals for many hours, was extremely reliable and punctual and exceptionally caring. Keisha gave great comfort to both my pets and me. Thank you so much Keisha, we will certainly be calling on you again.

Keisha didan amazing job at looking after my little Sphynx kitten Monty. We were kept informed of how he was doing whilst we were away and received several picture updates. The house was left spotless upon our return. Would happily use Keisha again to look after Monty and would recommend her services.
