Hi pet lovers! 😻🐕🐰🐴🐈🐾
My ethos: All animals are sentient beings that deserve fabulous lives. I would adopt all the strays and seniors if I could, one day I'll get a hobby farm so that I can!
Outside of Pawshake, I am a nurse and midwife. I am currently working in nursing education, and am a perpetual student. So, my availability is pretty good this year - I work 5 or 6 days a fortnight 8am - 430pm, and am otherwise studying or doing pet care.
I have a passion for rescues and seniors. Disco, my dog, is a rescue from Alice Springs, and the goodest of bois. Monroe is a new addition July 2020 and has taken over my house as managing director. She is super playful and took to Disco easily. 🙄🙄😂😂😍😍🐾🐾🐾🐾
With Pawshake - I love taking dogs out for walks - even better if I can have Disco along too. I only ever do this with a consented meet and greet prior. No offence taken for 'no Disco-s allowed'! (I won't tell him!) Popping in for feeds and welfare checks for all animals is also pure joy. Being a nurse, I'm not afriad to get my hands dirty - happy to change kitty litters etc.
I grew up with a cat, but have become a dog lover, too. I've always been very intuitive and fearless with all animals, I am happy to handle most anything although haven't looked after spiders or snakes (never scared of them though). I've looked after frogs, fish, and axelottles among some of the rarer pets! I've had rabbits in the past too (desperate to get some recue bunnies right now!) and know all about their cares. I totally miss those fantastic bunny binkies!
My dog had separation anxiety when I first got him so I am familiar with behaviour management in this area with owners being away. I accommodate as many requests as I can to alleviate any undue stress.
I am open to house-sits with at least 1 weeks notice. Shift work and travel to Melbourne for work means I need to be organised, and I run my rostered hours by you to make sure my hours at your place are suitable for your needs. My partner is home with Disco when I'm house sitting - thank you 😍🐕😍.
Happy holidaying/working/busy life-ing, fur fams!
Would recommend Karen to anyone. Used her many times now.
Karen clearly loves animals and our fur babies love her! Our pets were very well looked after while we were away and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again.
