Available for walks and visits in Bulimba/Hawthorne/Morningside area now!
Hi! I'm Sophie, a former journalist turned filmmaker. I'm 28, responsible and good-humoured, and believe common sense is a lot rarer than we're lead to believe. (I'd also like to think I possess a fair bit of that 'common sense' and definitely employ this when I'm caring for animals!)
The sob story: My family and I adopted a five-year-old Border Collie/Aus Shepherd mix named Panda when I was younger (he's the old boy in the photo with me wearing the same red shirt I have in my profile pic). I loved him very much and was very attached, but unfortunately his time was up in August 2017 when his deteriorating health meant he couldn't enjoy his favourite things anymore. At that time it was just him and I living where I still live today - I still miss him.
Now, doing most of my work from home, I have the freedom to help other people with their pets while they work or holiday. The money I make here helps me with my writing and film projects, as well my health (I have a chronic lung condition that can be financially draining).
What I most enjoy doing is dog walking, since I walk a lot on my own anyway, but I am also able to pet sit during the day, and pop over to yours to feed them or give some love. I already do this with my housemate's family dog visits. I have a dog door to my backyard, and a grassed, fully-fenced backyard just large enough to play fetch. I even have a spare leash and dog bowl.
I have an open licence, and a reliable little Toyota Corolla. I used to take my dog to and from the vet's and groomer's with this car without problem, so if there's need to drive your pet somewhere, please just ask.
I prefer to help out with pets in the Bulimba/Morningside/Hawthorne area, but will venture outside depending on the circumstances ☺
I have a degree in journalism and film production, as well as a post grad certificate in creative writing.
