Hi there! I am a pet-lover through and through. In fact my friends call me Dr Dolittle sometimes :) Having 2 kitties of my own, I am a cat specialist but also love dogs, rabbits, chooks and anything else that moves really. My mobile phone is filled with pics of my own and other pets I meet during my day job as a property manager.
I have done numerous private house and pet sitting gigs in the past and really enjoy meeting and befriending new furry faces. It amazes me how each little one is so different with their own unique and adorable personality. This love of animals is a huge part of why I pet-sit but I also enjoy putting owners at rest that their fur-babies are being well-cared for in their absence. In practical terms, pet-sitting allows me to save a little extra to go on holidays overseas once a year which is a bonus!
My home visits include feeding, cleaning up after and playing with your pets as well as anything other specific requirements you may have (up to 20 minutes per visit, walking extra). I am experienced in giving medications including tablets and am very well-versed in reading your animal's behaviour and picking up any potential health issues.
*** Dog walking (30 mins) is included only as part of home visits as below***
1 visit, no walk = $15/day
1 visit, 1 walk = $20/day
2 visits, no walk = $25/day
2 visits, 1 walk = $30/day
2 visits, 2 walks = $35/day
Simply choose 1 or 2 visits/day, message me your requirements and I’ll provide a quote :)
As a registered and police cleared property manager, I am also an expert in all those other things you may worry about whilst away including:
*Stringent securement of your property & keys. I also like to check if the water and electricity have been turned off by thieves looking for vacant properties.
*Identifying internal and external water leaks (Murphy's Law!)
*General property care eg mail collection, bins in/out, reticulation operation
*Full and transparent communication via Whatsapp when you are overseas
Living and working in the Eastern Suburbs area, I am available for home visits in both the morning and afternoon/evening plus during the day on weekends. Unfortunately, I am not available for home-stays or anything during office hours.
Since using Pawshake for my own pet-sitting requirements, I have found having your fur-babies cared for in their own home to be the most stress-free and cost effective method to keep them (and you) happy while you're away.
Still not sure? Have more questions? Just drop me a message and I'd be happy to help! I would also love to come and meet you and your fur-babies to see if I would suit your needs :)
Sarah was excellent! My cats have separation anxiety and she dealt with them beautifully. Highly recommend!
Sarah was amazing with our 2 kittens while we were away for 2 weeks. She kept us up to date with photos and information about their behaviours and health. She was very vigilant and has good knowledge, being able to identify if there's any changes in your pets behaviours, eating or toilet habits. Definitely a real piece of mind while away. Our kittens were very happy and greatly looked after. Will be sure to use Sarah's services again in the future!
