About Karen

*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!

Katen was amazing. Millie finds it hard to trust new faces but Karen put us both at ease very quickly. When I returned Millie was happy and contented. Karen kept me updated with fabulous photos and messages. I have no hesitation in recommending her to others who are considering her to look after their furbaby. She is warm and caring and has wonderful empathy. I will definitely be booking her again for Millie.
