About Steffan

I'm currently available for pet-sitting and house-sitting in the Canberra region. 

Please note: I am only taking on new clients/pets for pet sits with a duration of 2 weeks or longer. 

I have been pet-sitting for people on and off over the past 4 years. I've cared for heaps
of different animals in the past - dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles, fish, chickens, geese, etc. 

I'm passionate about animals, work full-time in the public service and I love being in a home with pets. 

My motivation to become a pet sitter started when I began pet sitting 4 years ago. I realised how much I missed having a pet around the house which was always the norm while growing up. I currently own a 1 bedroom apartment and having a larger breed of dog in the apartment just wouldn't be fair on the dog so I have decided until I live in a house to offer pet sitting services. 

Services included: feeding, walking, cleaning kitty litter for cats and back yard for
dogs, mail collection, watering of indoor and outdoor plants, giving medication. 

Because I currently work from home 4 days a week and am in the office for the other day I
will be able to keep your pet company and give them lots of attention while you are away. I will be out on occasional errands on the weekend but you can expect me to be able to keep your pet company the majority of the time. 

For dog walks I
am happy to take your dog on up to two walks per days depending on their usual routine. Typically my walks will be between 30-60 minutes. I always aim to keep their routine as similar as possible to what they are used to.  

I take security of the houses I stay in seriously. I ensure everything is locked up when I am away and will be around the house in the evenings. Since I am working from home on all but one day a week I will also be around the house to watch over it for you. 

I prefer longer pet sits of 2+ weeks to minimise frequent moving around houses. I am confident
caring for a variety of dog breeds, large and small dogs and dogs that require medication. Please feel free to get in contact if you want any further information

Steffan provided excellent care to our two golden retrievers and kept us fully and regularly informed about their welfare while we were away. He was even able to manage the higher demands of our rambunctious 16 month old puppy with grace, patience and skill. We would not hesitate to ask for his services again in future.

Steffan was great with Thor and left my place in great condition. Thor showed no signs of anxiety when I got home which is amazing! I highly recommend Steffan and will be using him again in the future.
