I am a dog lover, and I am looking for people who need their pets looked after in their homes. I am caring, reliable, friendly and fit so can take them for long walks regularly as well : ) I am very gentle, and would never scold or hurt your pet. I have sooo much empathy and love for animals, I probably like them more than humans!
Through out my life i have had a number of different types of pets. Fish, budgie, canary, guinea pigs, a duck and a chicken, a magpie (I looked after an injured baby one), sugar gliders, hermit crabs and my favourite being my dog right now, Poppy.
I have experience with small dogs with temperament issues (my own dog Poppy), and I understand why dogs can have these issues and that it's okay for them to be this way, i mean humans have many issues, why isn't it okay for dogs to as well?
I can guarantee I will look after and adore your pet to the best of my ability, and would send you photos and updates of them throughout the day, and if anything were to go wrong (hopefully this wouldn't happen) I would update you right away!
I am not allowed pets (except my own) in my apartment, however I will happily come to your house to mind or walk your pet!
And about me - I am 26, and just finished my bachelor of human services (social work) this year. I live in reservior (more towards the Preston side near northland).
House Visiting - If you book this with me I will come to your home for 1-2 hours a day at your chosen time and I will feed, walk, play with and cuddle your pets during that time. This is good for if your pets are okay being alone during the night. Dog walking is free of charge with house visiting :)
Pet Sitting - This is where I would basically live in your home, including sleepover, and pet/house sit for a period of time. I am very clean and try to make it like i haven't been there for when you come back home. This is better for pets who have anxiety about being left alone at night, or for pets that need a lot of attention and cuddles :) Dog walking is free of charge with Pet sitting.
Pet Day Care - This is where I come to your house and mind your pets during the day for a period of time of your choosing. This is good for if you have a puppy, or a sick dog that can't be left alone. (It's the same as Pet Sitting but I don't have the luxury of sleeping at your home). Dog walking is free of charge with Pet Day Care. I usually do $45 for a standard 3 hours of pet day care, and it works out to be about $15 an hour.
Dog Walking - This is where you can book me to walk your dog on the days that you aren't able to.
Pick up/Drop off Services - I have a full license and reliable car so you can also book me to pick up or drop off your pets.
