Service Description
From as early as i can remember I've had a sense of a connection with all animals i think they're all great and beautiful and on some level, we rely on each other.
my wife has always told me that I should work with animals or do something animal related because of how happy and contented it makes me when I'm around animals, people also tell me that I have a natural ability to interact with animals, I don't know how true that is but I certainly enjoy spending time with all creatures great and small. i very often look after our close friends two beagles who are pictured Frodo and Sherlock are friends travel a lot for work and leisure so i get the pleasure of either hosting or house sitting
caring comes naturally to me, i currently work as a disability support worker and I believe everyone deserves a fair go and animals just as so. I also have a military background so I understand the benefits for firm but fair discipline (i will never hit your animal though so don't worry). boundaries should always be in place and each person/animal should know who's in charge and whom to listen to this way we are all happy, comfortable and safe, however I'm a big softy and will also roll around on the floor playing and I'm not afraid to admit that i am a sensitive guy and will just as contented cuddling up watching a movie or reading a book.
I'm flexible and relatable and happy to discuss and consider any options that will increase the comfort and love of your furry friends.

i can provide walking sitting, overnight minder and any other personal care that your pet desires, i will respect your current routine and can either come to you or your pets can stay with me, i live approx 300 meters from a nice beach (Parkdale) and a short walk to dog walking parks.

i also own an Axolotl and have ended up fostering fish that he didn't eat and grew and grew also ended up fostering a friends fish who moved overseas so I know how to clean and maintain fresh or tropical fish ( not salt water but I could probably adapt)

if there is anything else then do not hesitate to ask

Awesome.... what a beautiful caring soul Aaron is, entrusting our beloved little old man to him proved a gift. Aaron has been in contact FIM day one, a visit to our home to meet and greet our 14 old Andy, they bonded immediately. I got wonderful texts and pics, kept me up to date with Andy's settling in and confirmed all our instructions. Thank you heaps Aaron, we very much appreciate your kindness and care for Andy.

This has been an amazing experience. Aaron and his wife Tash really bonded with our dog, they cared for him and gave him love greater than most sitters give, they were truly fabulous. We are very confident that we will leave our dog with them next time we require!!!
