About Rebecca

Hi there!

My name is Rebecca and I am a third year Veterinary Medicine Student, huge animal lover and currently located in Melbourne's western suburbs.

I love to stay active and am an avid runner, I enjoy running and walking along the beach that is located just across from my house. I am very lucky that near my area I have an off lead dog park and a dog beach within 2kms of my home.

I currently own 10 year old maltese shih tzu cross, Milly and male ginger cats. Milly loves playing with other dogs and making them chase her around. My 2 cats are very unphased by dogs, they are curious for the first 10 minutes before they find themselves a comfy spot to have a nap.

I am an avid dog lover and hence why I have signed up for a pet sitting service! I have previously volunteered at The Lost Dogs Home in North Melbourne for just over 2 years where I gained a lot of experience with different breeds of dogs and different handling methods.

Being a student I am reasonably flexible with my hours, and have oppurtunities during the semester to bring in my fury friends with me to class where they will get ample amount of pats and cuddles from other students. In addition I have long holiday periods were I love to

stay active or just relax and have some downtime, and would love to do that with the company of your beloved family member while you're away on holiday!

Would love to hear from you so feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Thanks, Bec

Rebecca was wonderful with our two cats and super patient with our shy, scaredy little girl, so much so that she was soo comfortable enough to go to her for pats. She’s a wonderful cat sitter

Rebecca is lovely. She worked hard to get our 2 stand of fish cats to feel comfortable with her. Daily updates, pics and videos helped us feel reassured that they were in good hands. No hesitation in recommending Rebecca and we will definitely book her again.
