*Can now house-sit again* :)
Hi pet lovers. I am a nurse and midwife working in Geelong. I live in North Geelong and can travel as required around my roster. I have a passion for rescues - my dog named Disco from Alice Springs, and a senior cat, Kit, my Yarrawonga girl.
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!
I enjoy taking dogs out for walks and popping in for feeds and welfare checks for all animals.
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 (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 and know all about their cares. I do miss a fantastic bunny binkie!
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 like to bring Disco with me when able - may as well socialise him and get his walk in, too. Totally understand many dogs aren't up for this, though - 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!)
Open to house-sits with at least 1 weeks notice. Reducing price for Xmas period as now have some help with my own fur kids (previously couldn't easily leave my cat ... diabetic on insulin injections!).
Happy holidaying, fur fams!
Karen was friendly, reliable and easy to communicate with. She provided brilliant daily walk updates that we loved receiving. Would highly recommend.
I would trust you with my babies anytime! That you so much for looking after Maggie and Elliott. Loved getting photos from you on the night. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know! Thanks Karyn
Walks, playtime, feeds.
