About Virginia
I love animals! I have had many pets. Dogs = I owned a Rhodesian Ridgeback, until he left us for the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago :-( ... so I am very (SUPER) comfortable with large breed dogs. My dog went everywhere with me and was walked 4 or 5 times a day.

I have also owned a Staffie, and have looked after dogs such as Labradors, Poodles, Schnauzers, Chows, Great Danes, you name it....happy to do any pet sitting as had a few feline friends as well ;-)

I have a very good friend who worked at DCH, a Sydney dog rescue group, who I have spent a lot of time with. He has taught me over the years how rescue dogs often need extra or special care to help keep them stable, and in order to rehabilitate them. He taught me how to watch and look for signs of naughtiness about to happen. Think Cesar Milan....

So now lets talk about furry fluffy cats (CATS). Furry kitty’s range from the talking (think loud meow) blue Burmese to big white fluffy, lots of fun cats. From Woozie to Tigger to Velvet to Prima Donna, they all have there own cat personality.

Birds...tick yes. Chickens....tick yes. Snakes...mmm, not sure but my friend is Byron Bay has a baby cobra! Wooops! I am also good with horses.
Please be one hundred percent honest about your pets, i.e if they have any conditions that may need attention. If they need ointment etc, that is ok, if they are older or sick just let me know and I will look after them accordingly.

Even if your dog or cat etc is healthy but may have been ill recently please do let me know so I can keep an eye on them. I only want the best for our babies, and particularly whilst you are away. Transparency is key here.

As I work from home I would be home all day so your pets would not be lonely.....far from it, lots of cuddles.
Oh and enough about the furry friends....

I offer Pet Sitting, so looking after your furry friends in the comfort of their own home, and of course you have the security that someone is looking after your home too. Dog walking, house visiting and also animal training if required.

I like gardening and I had many plants and trees at my old house so I will water and feed, even trim the dead leaves if I am so inclined, they grow better that way.

As mentioned I am very clean and tidy (bordering on anal retentive), just ask anyone! You may even find your house cleaner than when you left it!

At this point in time I would like to do house sitting or pet sitting, in the Sydney area (will travel) but I am not limited to this at all. I was thinking of moving up towards Byron Bay to live for a while as have many friends on the North Coast as well. Also I do love the country and the green it provides. Large properties are ok and I can ride an electric mower, please provide the instructions though...LOL

As I work in Online Marketing and if you contact me, which would be great, you will see that I have a very strong online profile. I have recommendations on LinkedIn and others. If you cant find me on the internet I would be highly surprised. It is my job to be found ;-)

Please feel free to contact me for any Pet Sitting in Sydney.

I look forward to looking after your house and your furry friends, or even your fish!

I'm in the process of studying Cert 3 in Animal Studies and Dog Psychology to assist pet owners in creating a balanced and loving pet ;-)

Virginia did an amazing job. She took great care of my dog. as a new rescue we didnt know too much about his manner but she took it all in her stride. I would recommend her whole heartedly and will be calling on Virginia again.

Virginia looked after Rufus at our home for 3.5 weeks. Rufus was very well looked after and we received daily updates. The house was clean and tidy on our return, Virginia had watered our plants, looked after the garden and goldfish. A great dog sitter!
