My name is Kay. I am a 31 year old shift worker, working as a nurse at The Royal Children’s hospital. Originally from Wollongong, NSW, however moved to Northcote 6 years ago and haven't looked back.
Back home I grew up with dogs (golden retrievers, labradors, german shepherds) and miss that terribly. I have been doing occasional dog walking/feeding/sitting (dog comes to my place) for a few years now to fill that void. With these dogs I went on trips to the beach, bush trails and dog parks, as well as provided lots of cuddles. My family dog resides at home in NSW. Her name is Summer, a golden retriever, who is 10 and just had hip surgery!
I have looked after dogs with health issues, such as seizures, and am confident administering medications or vet appointments. When visiting your dog, I don't mind taking bins in, watering plants, bringing mail in etc.
I live in a townhouse with a secure courtyard opposite the All Nations Park dog park, which is very convenient. I also have a car, which i love to take dogs for walks in the Darebin Parkland, Merri Creek trail or Altona dog beach.
I believe I am a great dog sitter/walker as I have a life-time of experience with a genuine love for dogs. I am mature, responsible, calm and can provide many verbal references. Minding dogs has been a great outlet to fill the void on not owning my own dog rather than for $. My favourite days and weeks of the year are the ones where I have a dog by my side.
