About Lily

My partner, Brodie, and I have always been animal lovers. Throughout our lives, we have developed our skills working with animals of all shapes and sizes.

I first moved to Australia as an international student to study Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Adelaide. Desperately missing having an animal around, as soon as I could I bought a pet rat and moved into a share house with a little Jack Russell Terrier also named Lily. I have spent time volunteering in a veterinary clinic and am comfortable dealing with any medical problems that our beloved pets may develop. I have also spent a great deal of time volunteering at zoos and working with various reptiles, insects, and small mammals. For me, nothing beats a walk or trip to the park with a dog.

Being animal crazy runs in my genes. My mother worked as a veterinary technician and later as a great ape keeper at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado, USA. I have spent a total of 6 months of my entire childhood without a dog or cat waiting at home. As I got older, I began developing interests in pets beyond your standard dogs and cats. As soon as I could walk, I wanted to be a horse rider. While in high school, I rode competitively for my schools teams and qualified for Nationals two years in a row. Despite the excitment that accompanies winning in the ring, I realized that I actually prefer stable management and horsemanship. As an international student, I am unable to ride while in Australia, but whenever I return home, I help my coach train and exercise horses. In high school I began bird watching and have since further developed my passion for birds.

Brodie’s household has never been without a pet. Nothing puts a bigger smile on his face than getting to stop and greet a dog on the street, or making friends with a neighbourhood cat. As a competitive athlete, Brodie’s energy and exuberance can tired even the most rambunctious of pups! Together, we can provide any service to your fury/scales/hairy friend!

Great team! Lily was busy so Brodie took my puppy for a walk and played with her. Great communication and service! Me and my puppy are very happy!!

House Sitting

Lily and Brodie cared for my pets in my home for a few days while I was interstate. Both Gavin, my dog, and Michael, my cat, were happy and content when I returned home. Gavin can be high maintenance, so I was pleased that Lily and Brodie were able to look after him so well.

Lily and Brodie left the house clean and tidy.

I would recommend them as a house and pet sitter.
