Hello, my name is Erin Healy. I am an experienced dog walker and petsitter in the Newcastle area. I have been dog walking/pet sitting with Pawshake since November 2019. I also have experience as a dog walker with RSPCA and independent pet sitter, prior to joining Pawshake.
My services include dog walking and pet sitting or just dropping by for a short visit to feed and play with your pets when you are away. In terms of pet sitting, I can stay either overnight or for multiple days, to suit your needs. Please message me for any queries and to check my availability!
A bit more about me: I am 21 years old and I live in Newcastle. I study Engineering at the University of Newcastle, but before I started University I have had multiple years of experience working with all sorts of animals.
I am a very patient, caring, and enthusiastic carer with experience. In my gap year, I worked at RSPCA for over a year, in both the Cattery and as a trained dog walker. Through the RSPCA I have gained experience with dogs of all sizes with very different backgrounds and behaviors. I was always able to create a very comfortable, positive relationship with all the dogs I interacted with. In the Cattery I cleaned the cages and provided interaction with kittens and cats as well as completing behavioral assessments.Outside of the RSPCA and Paw shake, I have been a pet sitter for family friends in the past. So far I have had experience and am confident in looking after the following menagerie of animals: Dogs, Cats, Guinea Pigs, Fish, Turtles, Chicks and Chickens, Potty Lambs, and Calfs. (The chickens, potty lambs, and calves come from my family's farming background).
At the moment I am looking to earn some extra money each week and so having learned about Pawshake I am very excited to put my love of animals and regular availability to use!
I am available at varied times throughout the week depending on my university timetable and I would love to be able to help your family look after your pets, whether it be dog walking or pet sitting. If you are interested I would love to hear from you, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
Erin looked after our cat and had a kind and caring nature with him. She was easy to deal with, communicated well and provided regular updates. Would definitely book again. Thanks Erin.
Erin is very capable and understood the instructions for our pets. The pets were well cared for and the house was neat & tidy when we returned.
We were kept up to date with anything regarding the pets and Erin’s communication was great.
We recommend Erin to anyone requiring pet/house sitting.
