About Tamika
Hello!
My name is Tamika and I reside in Point Cook, Victoria. Since I was first born I had animals around me; both of my parents are animal lovers and I have grown to be one myself. After graduating high school I wasn't sure what to do with my spare time, and then I found Mad Paws and I knew it'd be perfect.

I have finished high school with a certificate III in Animal Companion Services, which helped me further my knowledge on animals big and small. While studying for this I worked in a dog grooming salon and during my school training days I had a lot of different animals come into the classroom (goats, chickens, etc) which provided me with even more knowledge. I am very confident when caring for animals and honestly I love being around them. I've grown up with animals all of my life, at one point we even had six cats. I now have my own cat and my own rabbit; both who I love dearly. We also have a family dog, he is an Alaskan Malamute.

I am confident with animals of all shapes, sizes and personalities.

I prefer to pet sit at the owners house due to finding this lessens the stress on your own fur baby; it can be scary for them if you put them into unfamiliar territory with strange people. I can travel out to areas, though I don't drive; I'm more than happy getting places via public transport. In the case of an emergency I have family and friends who can help out with transportation to vets. :)

Feel free to send a message with any questions you may have.

Dog Walking - May 28, 2018
We asked Tamika to walk our 2 boys while we went on vacation. Tamika was perfect in all communication and flexibility. She kept us informed while we went on holidays and sent pictures of our fur babies. The boys seemed very happy and healthy when we returned. Would highly recommend.

As you know our pets are our children so of course you want the best for them. Plus having 2 big boisterous, attention seeking, boys you really need the right person and Tamika has definately proven herself. She genuinely cares about our boys and makes the effort to know and understand them. Ludo & Nelson really like her too. We are so glad that we decided to give Tamika a chance and will continue using her on a regular basis.
