I'm an animal lover who is experienced with dog walking, dog sitting, cat home visits and foster caring for 4 dogs from rescue groups. Growing up my family had 2 cats and 2 dogs that I cared for. I have a 2-year-old Labrador Kara who is a Reclassified Guide Dog and I often take her on my client walks. I recently lost my 14.5-year-old Labrador who I raised as a puppy and am experienced with senior dogs.
I offer walking and home visits/feeding for the suburbs of: Clifton Hill, North Fitzroy, Abbotsford, Collingwood, Northcote, Richmond, Kew, Alphington and Fairfield. I might consider other suburbs if they are nearby these suburbs.
I have volunteered for 2 weeks with Soi Dog Foundation in Phuket, Thailand a shelter for street dogs who have been abused too badly to be released back onto the streets once they have been de-sexed. At Soi Dog I walked dogs in the morning and in the afternoon I sat in the dog runs (held 15-20 dogs) providing human socialisation. During my time at Soi Dog I interacted with aggressive dogs which including stopping dog fights when packs of dogs attacked a weaker dog or when a dominant dog attacked another dog because they wanted to be walked first or walked again.
I also have done volunteer work for farm sanctuaries and have experience with farm animals such as cows, pigs, sheep, horses, goats, chickens, deer etc.
Linda was an absolute star! 🤩
She responded really quickly to my enquiry and was incredibly accommodating and flexible with my last minute booking. As a first time user of a cat sitter, I was super anxious about leaving my cats home alone but Linda was so friendly, calming and supportive! She communicated with me before and during my leave to ensure everything ran smoothly, letting me know how everything was going and sending me updates and pictures of my cats happy faces on her daily visits! Would definitely recommend! 😻 THANKS LINDA!!!
Lovely person and was amazing with Max, took him on lengthy walks as well - and changed up his scenery too. Highly recommend.
