About Kaitlyn

Hi there,

I’m a reliable, caring, friendly, trustworthy and considerate person who will take the best possible care of your home and fur babies, like they are my own.

I’ve been around animals my whole life and our family has had many fur babies over the years. I live at home with my parents, partner and we currently have 1 family dog, a 7 year old Cavoodle named Abbey and my partner and I have a 3 year old German Shepherd named Indie. My family also has 2 cats, 15 year old domestic long haired named Lily & 7 year old Ragdoll named Bonnie.

I’m also a horse lover and rider. I started horse riding 16 years ago and was lucky enough to get my first horse 13 years ago. I was leasing a beautiful gentle giant named Tiny, due to the sad loss of my dream horse at the start of 2016 but because of a lack of time, sadly, I don’t have a horse at the moment. I look forward to getting my own again in a year or 2.

I have many pictures of my fur family in my profile if you'd like to see them! My family has previously had ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and sheep too.

I'm comfortable around and love animals big and small. I can care for your dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, ginea pigs, horses, alpacas, pigs, birds, fish, turtles and any others you may have, you name it!

I'd love to pet sit and stay overnight for you in your pets own home. I don’t mind if we all sleep on the bed together! I'm also happy to visit your house to check, feed and play with your pets while you enjoy time away. Currently I only offer one home visit a day due to work commitments but if you’re really after two home visits a day, get in contact and I may be able to assist!Additionally, I also offer dog walking too. Know that when you’re away your fur kids will receive the best care and attention possible.

I’m also more than happy to bring the mail in, water the garden and put out/bring in the rubbish bin if needed.

Although I live on the Northside of Canberra, I work in Woden so am more than happy to house sit all over Canberra. Don't hesitate to contact me. I try to update my availability as best I can to make your booking experience as easy and fast as possible, however it is a little difficult the way the calendar is set out.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you and your pets!

PLEASE NOTE: I’m not currently taking on dogs for regular walking as I don’t have enough time unfortunately!

As always Kaitlyn took great care of our 2 cats while we were away. And they seem very comfortable around her :) Would definitely recommend her to anyone!!

We returned home to a very happy dog and house left in an immaculate state. We would certainly be happy for Kaitlyn to look after our dog again!
