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, 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. 🙄🙄😂😂😍😍🐾🐾🐾🐾
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. My availability is a bit more predictable this year, as I am currently working in nursing education, and a casual telehealth gig with short hours on weekends. I can fit pawshake gigs in after work, but can do mornings if you're close to home or the hospital :).
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. I'll 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 and Monroe when I'm house sitting - thank you 😍🐕😍.
Happy holidaying/working/busy life-ing, fur fams!
Karen is an absolute gem! Karen took wonderful care of our birds and home whilst we were away. Karen is down to earth, reliable and loved by our birds. They are looking forward to Karen coming back soon !
Used Karen several times now. Very reliable.
