About Emma

Hello!

I am an animal lover located in Altona, VIC with experience in house sitting, pet sitting, dog walking.

I have a CertII in Animal Studies, and have experience volunteering with animals (Dingoes and German Shepherds in particular). I own two cats, and after having to administer medication twice daily to one of the biggest jerks on the planet (one of our cats previously had a heart condition), I am quite confident with managing medical requirements. I understand it can be stressful leaving an animal who requires regular medication or special attention - so I always send updates to owners including photos and confirmation of visits/feeds/successful medication administration to ensure peace of mind.

Having volunteered with GSDs in Need Australia (German Shepherd Dogs) and Dingo Den Animal Rescue NSW, I have experience walking larger, and sometimes very stubborn or excitable dogs who are undergoing obedience training, or trying to overcome anxiety disorders due to unfortunate previous life experiences. I am more than happy to spend ample time walking and playing with your dog (big or small!), as well as giving them all of the scritches.

Availability - I can try to cater for early morning (before 9am), or early evening (after 4pm), as well as much broader timeframes on Fridays and over weekends.

If you think I'd be a good fit for your pets I'd love to have a chat!

House Sitting

We felt very comfortable having Emma look after our pets and our house while we were away. She was at ease with our dog straight away and went beyond our expectations to make sure the place was looked after.

Photos of our pets every day reassured us that they were happy. We would definitely book her again.

Thanks Emma !

House Sitting
Amelia & Dylan, 2020-03-08

Emma looked after our two big pups while we were overseas for two weeks, and we couldn't have been happier. She kept us consistently updated, let us know immediately when she had a concern, sent photos almost every day, and our dogs seemed sad to see her go when we got back. There is nothing better than peace of mind when you're that far away, and Emma definitely provided that for us. Looking forward to booking her again!
