About Katherine
Are you looking for a loving family for your pet to chill and play with during the day? I'm available full time to spend time with your beloved pet while you are at work, overnight or for a weekend away. I'm a very reliable and responsible pet walker and sitter who will go to great lengths to accommodate each pet's needs individually. I am available weekdays for walks and 24/7 for pet sitting. My husband and I live in a two bedroom newly renovated and comfortable apartment in South Yarra. My husband who works from home, also loves animals. He is always taking breaks for cuddles and playtime with the 'kids'. He often comes out with us on walks and outings around South Yarra.

I'm aware that every pet has their own comfort zone when it comes to handling, and their own requirements in relation to care and feeding. Please feel free to tell me about your pet's schedule.

We will be going out for walks and/or runs, playing fetch, being sociable with other pets or just chilling out together for cuddles and down time. Any pets staying the day or overnight will get two walks at least 30min and often longer if they have the energy. Please note that overnight bookings are only available at advertised price for approx btwn 5pm-9.30am or 18 hr stay. Additional cost for extra hours apply. My goal is to give your pet what they need to have a great time while you are away, feeling content, happy and safe.

Since I have my own pet, a five year old Puggle named Coco, growing up with pets and dog walking/training a new puppy Leo since Sept 2017, I have lots of experience with what it takes to look after someone else's pet; treating them with care and consideration. I take this job seriously as I know what it is like to have my own pooch who is part of the family and how I'd feel leaving them in the hands of someone else. We love dogs so much that we often let them sleep in bed with us if they are allowed.

I can offer pick up and drop off in my car or by foot. If you would like to meet with myself and/or Coco please get in touch so we can arrange a meet and greet. I can take your pet individually or with Coco depending on what is best. I am very flexible with days and times and I can be booked last minute. All dog sitting includes walks, lots of cuddles and treats if allowed.

Thank you so much Katherine, we found the cats so happy when we came back! They barely realised that we left. We will call you again!
