About Naomi
I am an empathetic and down to earth local with a love of animals, learning and travels.

I grew up in the burbs but was surrounded by animals, we always had pets, wildlife, and loads of injured or abandoned animals in need of looking after; I’ve raised reptiles, rodents, birds, marsupials, a couple of cats and a charming red kelpie. I went to an agricultural school but quickly realised I like animals too much to farm them.

My experiences over the years have led me to appreciate that even the most 'simple' creatures have an amazing complexity of drives and emotion. I have a natural (and university supplemented) curiosity and understanding of psychology so I love teaching dogs little tricks when they are in the right mood. I am also happy using the same positive reinforcement methods to try to curb barking, licking or other funny behaviors as it takes minimal time and effort while I'm there. I don't think anyone will ever have a complete understanding of cat psychology (!) so I can't guarantee they will learn any tricks, but I do know we will get along well!

If you feel like your pet deserves some extra adventures, don't hesitate to get in touch - I would so love to take them with me on the next one!

Just a heads up; those booking over Christmas / NYE will need to be couple-friendly, my partner will be on holiday so will likely want to pet-sit too! Lachlan is essentially the male version of my profile lol (except for his additional love of guitar).

Pet Sitting - Dec 12, 2019
Naomi did a great job of looking after our puppy for the second time. She arrived on time, remembered all the ‘routines’ from last time and we came home to a happy and relaxed dog. Thank you Naomi!

Thanks Naomi (and Lachie!) for responding to our request so quickly, and taking such good care of our pup, Echo. It was lovely to come home to such a happy, relaxed and well cared for puppy.
