About Karen

Hi pet lovers! πŸ˜»πŸ•πŸ°πŸ΄πŸˆπŸΎ My ethos: All animals are sentient beings that deserve fabulous lives. I would adopt all the strays and seniors if I could, maybe one day I'll get a hobby farm so that I can!

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. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎ 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.

Outside of Pawshake, I am a nurse and midwife in a non-clinical role this year. This has made my availability a lot more predictable, so I'm loving having more time and energy for Pawshake gigs.

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 (am desperate to get some rescue rabbits if my rental will allow it) ...so I know all about their cares. I 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 many requests to alleviate any undue stress.

I am open to house-sits with at least 1 weeks notice, but will be taking this out of my services once I return to living by myself later on in 2021. My housemate is home with Disco and Monroe when I'm house sitting - thank you πŸ˜πŸ•πŸ˜. Happy holidaying/working/busy life-ing, fur fams!

I've never used this type of service before and was happy with Karens professional attitude. She provided a postive experience throughout, and my pet and home were well looked after.

Karen was fantastic. I was nervous leaving my cat and dog for the first time with a dogsitter. I was totally at ease once I met Karen and she met my furbabies. There was an instant bond. I was away for 3 nights and Karen went to my place twice a day and sent photos and kept in contact the whole time. I would highly recommend Karen. She is a lovely happy friendly girl and loves her job.
