About me: My name is Julie and I am a 22 year old international student in my 4th year of vet school at Murdoch University. I don't have any animals in Perth so this is my way of compensating for the lack of furry cuddles. Back in Mauritius, I have 8 dogs, all rescued strays. I have my own transport that I regularly use to go up to Swan Valley for horse-riding (which has been my life-long passion). Whilst living in Mauritius I was involved in various animal related activities, which I was never paid for. My goal was far from just a salary, it was rather the satisfaction of being around animals, since they make me happy In return. Tasks involved mostly catching and caring for abandoned animals on the street (emaciated cats and dogs) and trying to find them new homes. My absolute love for animals, experience with caring for them and my physical and mental abilities make me an excellent candidate for a pet sitting position.
You may have found my profile by searching "murdoch" area, however I am located in Rivervale. The reason why my area remains murdoch is because I go to university every day and would benefit from the shortest daily commute possible. This may just affect hosting services, however I am able to offer pick up and drop off services easily on my way to and from murdoch.
What I offer: I am very often at home, studying - so your animals would get close to 24/7 attention. (I'm only not at home when I go to class - the time spent away varies depending on my timetable).
Since I spend most of my day sitting down to study, I use my breaks to go out and exercise. When I am pet sitting, my exercise is in the form of dog walks so your energetic dogs will also get the exercise then need.
Since I've done 3 years year of vet school so far, I have already accumulated quite a lot of experience with simple tasks such as tableting (cats included) and injections. .
I also love going for hikes so if you are okay with it your dogs can even score a nice long walk in nature to change things up a bit.
lastly, rates: - my price is not fixed, I am very open to negotiation, and just because your price appears high, it does not mean that it will remain that way. I calculate my price according to driving distance, your pet's requirements for exercise, and madpaws' tax (15%). If you live quite far away I do ask for a small contribution for the meet and greet which sometimes takes up to 3 hours - this will just be added to the total price at the end of the stay.
looking forward to hearing from you all!...

Pet Sitting - Nov 30, 2019
Murphy loved his stay with Julie! So great to go away and know your pet is well looked after. Can’t recommend Julie high enough. Murphy has a new favourite friend! …
The most amazing considerate and laid back pet sitters we have used. Our dogs were very well looked after Julie took loads of photos.
Thank you for taking care of our pups while we chilled down south.…
