About Antonia

Hi there!!! I am Antonia, 31 years old. Currently, studying Project Management in Sydney. 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, Teddy, Max, Harry, and Fonzie. 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/or House Sitting: $27 for 50 minutes, additional pet $15. I can make a discount for longer periods of time.

  • Sleepover at owner’s house: $75 per day, additional pet $15. 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: $65, 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.
** 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 was amazing. I’m always nervous leaving my animals, because I honestly didn’t think anyone could care for my animals as much as I do! However Antonia was brilliant. She was so unbelievably loving towards the animals and provided heaps of updates to put my mind at ease. I wish I’d discovered her years ago!! Have already booked Antonia for my next holiday. Thank you for everything x

Antonia has visited and walked our cocker spaniel Ted for five months and he adores her. Antonia recently looked after Ted for ten days while we went on holiday and he had a blast with lots of walks and park play dates. We got regular daily updates and he was very comfortable and happy in his new surrounds. We happily recommend Antonia to care for your pets and we will definitely be choosing Antonia the next time we have to travel without our pup.
