I have been a passionate animal and creature lover my whole life. I have owned, shared or borrowed(!) dogs, cats, mice, birds, fish, turtles, bunnies, axolotls, horses, cows and sheep! I cannot kill bugs or any other creatures that jump into my space or home as all creatures have reverence in my life. I have also been learning animal communication over the years and although still a novice this has just deepened my passion for animals and nature. Most dogs come up to me and lick me as they know that I am tuning in! I previously worked with an educational institution in New Zealand that taught animal and environmental sciences and as such learnt a lot from our veterinary and animal behaviour teachers. I also spent a lot of time in the animal unit that we ran for our students which housed goats, chickens, bunnies, rats, mice, guinea pigs, turtles and also had a reptile room with a few lovely specimens like (on of my favourites), the Australia water dragon.
In NZ, I was also registered on Holidog (similar platform to Mad Paws) where I was rated as a Premium Sitter. Review my 5 star ratings here https://nz.holidog.com/Search/Profile/5502
Now, as a mature full-time student (from home) I can dedicate more time to being #thefurrysitter (my online brand in the making) and give your pet as much love as they require. The dog pictured, Alfie, was one of my regular clients in NZ with his big sister, Maisie. For your peace of mind, I hold a Criminal Check with the Ministry of Justice in NZ and a National Police Certificate (the Australian equivalent).
I do have one caveat, I will only take on doggie assignments with dogs that have had basic training and are socialised with other dogs. Thank you! I look forward to meeting the furry loves in peoples' lives (pet owners are the BEST people) and sharing furry parenthood stories.

I highly recommend Kylie as a fantastic sitter for any fur baby. She has looked after my cat (& house) on many occasions and treats my boy like he was her own. I actually think he likes Kylie more than me lol. I have always found Kylie to be reliable, considerate and completely trustworthy. And her love and care for animals is always evident. Having Kylie looking after my cat has meant I can enjoy my time away without any worries about him. …

Kylie has provided care and service in the charge of our pets during holidays and short-term urgent care related to our work commitments on a number of occasions.
We have two Boxer Dogs (Riley & Cooper) and Cat (Tiga) who Kylie has cared for in our home whilst maintaining our routines and high standards of pet care for our beloved furry family.
She uses her knowledge of dog behaviour and domestic animals to allow us a stress free break or time away, knowing our pets remain in their familiar environment. She has even learned our list of signs for gestures/commands to communicate with ‘Cooper’ who is congenitally deaf. A trusted service provider who provides regular communication and pup-dates to her clients. 🐾…
