Maia's furry clients.
Hi, I'm Maia!
Hello and Welcome! My name is Maia and I am a 27 year old Graduate student from California. I moved to Melbourne last year to commence a masters of teaching program at the University of Melbourne and I currently reside in Brunswick East close to Fleming Park. I love being around, learning about and caring for animals more than anything else in the world.
I have two doggy "brothers" back home that I miss dearly. I also volunteered as a dog walker at my local animal shelter back in the United States. Unfortunately, I am unable to keep animals at my current address. It is for these reasons that I decided to join Pawshake. I am pretty flexible with my hours and am usually able to accommodate for any short notice changes. I am CPR qualified for humans, dogs, and cats.
Please check out the skills and photos sections of my profile, for more information and pictures, relating to my previous experiences working with animals. I'm looking forward meeting you and your fur-babies.
Unfortunately, due to severe allergies, I cannot accommodate any overnight requests with indoor cats.
Dog Walking Services are subject to my University availability with preference for long-term clients. Walks are typically 30-45 minutes in length and I provide check-in/out notices that I have collected your pet and pictures during the walk.
In my "day job", I am a student working towards a Masters in Education at Melbourne Uni. I will look after your fur babies as if they were my own. I take the responsibility of caring for your family members very seriously.
I have a current police check and working with children check. Character references are available on request.
My experience: I have owned dogs all my life. Prior to joining Pawshake I had previously pet sat, groomed, and walked dogs belonging to neighbours and family friends.
