About Jen

About Me:

I'm a 35yo public servant patiently waiting for the day that I have my own dogs (and maybe even a cat!)!

While I live in the City I'm happy to travel 20 mins to a home.

Experience and history:

All my life I've been around animals... multiple family dogs (Great Dane, German Shepherds, German Shorthaired Pointer, Kelpie), school class pets, and friends' pets. In recent years I've also owned multiple fish and guinea pigs...all gorgeous with very different personalities.

Since moving to Canberra I've done my fair share of dogsitting... Great Danes, Kelpie, Golden Retriever, Border Terrier, British Bulldog, Yorkshire Terrier, Staffy, and Jack Russell...I've also helped out when visiting home and my parents are dogsitting...Terriers, German Shepherd, Staffy, along with house/pet sitting for my Aunty and cousin in Hobart...Scottish Folds, Maltese Schitzu, and various fluffy cats!

Amongst these, I've had some sick furbabies who needed regular medication and, on occasion, emergency vet visits (including my own pets, sadly).

About Me:

I currently live in an apartment so having the opportunity to look after others' pets is incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. I also love the fact that I can keep someone's baby happy and relaxed while they're away. It's always nicer for animals to stay in their own home rather than be put in a random kennel where they may not receive enough attention and may become anxious.

My Services:

Overnight stays - I will come and stay in your home for however many nights required, feed your pet as required, and keep their water topped-up. I will water any plants and take out the bins if requested. Can also walk your pet as required. Your pet will also receive cuddles and enjoy play-time - basically whatever they would normally do at home.

Daily visits - these can be Single or Double; I will check on your pet, feed them and top-up their water bowl, and spend some time with them. A standard visit is approximately 1 hour depending on what is required. I can also put out bins if required at the same time, or do a quick plant water.

Walking - Please note I do not offer permanent/ongoing walking jobs. A walk is 30mins to 1 hour in length which includes time at either end to make sure your pet is comfortable at home (top-up water after a walk, too). If your pet can only walk a short amount of time, I will simply spend more time with them at home.

*If medication is required during any of the above services I'll ensure this is given accordingly based on the owner's advice and guidance. Please also ensure Emergency Vet details are provided.

All animals, big and small, young and old. I love them all so please get in touch if you want your fur babies to have an enjoyable and comfortable experience while you relax on holiday.

Jen was brilliant. She sent us a photo of our happy Murphy on her first walk with him and another the following day. Jen responded to us quickly when we checked in with her and nothing seemed to be any trouble in our dealings with her. It was peace of mind knowing our dog was happily in his own home. Jen left the house in perfect condition and we have already re-booked her! It was a fantastic first Pawshake experience with Jen.

10/10 for Jen! She was a caring and responsible sitter for our dog Phoebe for a week. We returned home to a settled and relaxed dog. Highly recommend.
