SUBURBS I PROVIDE SERVICES TO: Brunswick East, Brunswick, Brunswick West, Coburg below Bell Street.
Hey, my name is Angela! I have been on Pawshake since 2016 and have taken care of many people's wonderful fur animals since then. In 2019, I was lucky enough to adopt my own lovely cat, Melon. He is spoilt rotten. My family pets back in my hometown of Canberra are a stubby orange cat called Spike, also known as The Ginger Terror, and a short-haired Border Collie called Top, also known as A Total Angel. As well as my own pets, I have also taken care of animals in a professional capacity.
My previous experience includes working at both a kennel and a vet clinic, as well as taking care of friend's and family's pets. I am a pretty active person, so dog walking is perfect. I have extensive experience cat sitting and absolutely adore kitties so can do house visits. I am responsible, reliable, pay attention to detail and have a strong sense of commitment and work ethic. Outside of petsitting, my free time is taken up with soccer soccer soccer - writing about, playing and volunteering!
PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, I live in a small flat so cannot accomodate any clients at mine. I work full time from home so my calendar is aligned with my capacity outside of business hours. I only take bookings that are no more than approximately 20 minutes bike ride from my home, for practicality reasons. If you are unsure, send through a request anyway and I'll let you know!
My price for dog walking is for a 30 minute walk.
My price for a home visit it is a half hour visit to feed, change litter and spend time with your pets.
If your pup requires a longer walks, I am happy to accomodate but request that I am paid equivalent to the minimum award wage for casual (currently $24.50 per hour according to the Fair Work Ombudsman).
With housesitting, I can work around stricter feeding or medicine times, but may sometimes go out in the evenings (not very late - I love my sleep).
If your pet requires more attention or time during housesitting such as having anxiety, happy to discuss options there. I can deliver medication, having worked with previous clients' pets who have needed oral medication and injections.
We have a high needs/ special needs dog who just recovered from a very invasive surgery, and Angela was so perfect watching over him and our other dog. Not only is she attentive, but she is wonderful with communication. Would absolutely recommend her for any dog sitting/minding needs. Thanks again for your help, Angela! You are the best.
This is the third time we have used Angela, highly recommend her! She is reliable, great with animals and very tidy.
I have worked as a cleaner and nurse's assistant at a veterinary hospital in the past, where I cleaned up after pets and helped deal with sick and stressed patients. More recently, I worked as kennel hand at a local boarding kennel, where I cleaned the facilities, walked the dogs and delivered specialised care to cats such as grooming and cuddles. Both of these jobs were enjoyable and enriching experiences, and I have the relevant references for them.
