About Antonia

I am Antonia, 31 years old. I´m from Colombia, therefore I speak Spanish and probably your pet is going to be able to learn another language :).

I really love to be in contact with nature and living beings. All of my life I have had pets (dogs and cats) with whom I have shared wonderful moments. Because of this, and with the aim of learning new skills in environmental and animal care, I decided to study a bachelor in Ecology and then a Certificate III in Captive Animals.

Some of my experiences in animal care have involved working for the conservation and rehabilitation of endangered animals in Colombia in a wildlife sanctuary. Also, I´ve worked in Wuff Time Colombia as a pet sitter. Currently, I am looking after Daisy, Maddie, Indi, Pablo, Elvia, Fonzie, Montana, Gypsi and Alfie. They are my little borrowed furry treasures of love.

My skills are to be very loving, patient, and understanding the needs of pets. You can rest assured that while you´re away, your pet will be in good loving hands. My service includes feeding, walking, playing, loving, relaxing, massaging, sleeping, and embracing your pet, as well as any special requirements you might have

Pets are my passion, and I enjoy almost everything when it comes to animals. This is why people who know me call me the ¨Professional animal hugger¨ :).

My motivation is to be able to spend valuable time with your furry love!!!

My services:

Dog Walking and/ one visit: price include: 50 minutes, additional pet $10. I can make a discount for longer periods of time.

Sleepover at owner’s house: additional pet $10. Your pet will be provided full care while you´re away. Includes feeding, playing, massaging/petting, walking twice a day, letting out to potty and companionship while I am there.*Due to my studies, part-time job or other engagements, I may leave for up to 5 hours during the day, but never for a longer stretch of time.

Sleepover at my home: Additional pet $10. I live with my partner (who really loves dogs too) in a spacious 1-bedroom apartment with a balcony and near dog-friendly parks. Perfect location for your dog to explore new surrounding and have fun.

Doggy/Catty day care: Same as sleepover service but this service is during 4 hours.

** Every pet has its own personality and character.Before any first booking and to provide an excellent service, I always like to meet with the owners and pets to get to know each other, your needs and expectations.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Lovely to hear from you soon!!!

ANTONIA.

Okay we're that couple who's cats are our kids and leaving them alone for a week or so is like losing an arm, or worse. So we had the good fortune to pick Antonia at a late stage (our bad) who was happily available for the period we needed her. Second point- handing over access to our apartment to a person I had only met briefly also adds to the stress of leaving our boys alone.

I'm more than happy to say that it went splendidly with Antonia, who is a gem. Cats happy, apartment perfect and her daily updates of photos and videos kept the worry away, and allowed us to enjoy our Tropical Cyclone Sarai, I mean holiday, in Fiji. Antonia and my missus did all the communicating and 'she who must be obeyed', was completely happy with all aspects of Antonia's assistance in looking after and loving our lads. And she kindly watered our plants which was really necessary in Sydney over that period.

It was good for both Antonia and ourselves to know that there was Pawshake, with its vetting process and insurance supporting everyone behind the scenes.

Final word, we totally recommend Antonia to anyone who is looking for a pet sitter, she is reliable, loving, a great communicator and she will be our 'go to gal' from now on when we need assistance to look after our cats.
