About Riss

Hi, I am Riss.

I am an experienced pet sitter & trained vet nurse. I have the skill & experience to manage special if required. I am also experienced in doggy massage which is great for the oldies in need of some special care.

Before becoming a vet nurse I was a kennel hand and dog groomer at a kennel. I work part-time so fur kids are only left for about 6 hrs max on days I work.

I live alone, with secure fencing around the whole property as seen in pictures.

I love having fur babies around.

I have an elderly chilled a cat (zena) that is very experienced with visitors, even dogs that like to chase cats. She knows better then to run or move quickly and will often just avoid them if they are not friendly. she is also inside only so no access to the outside. I also have 2 small black pugs that happy and comfortable with big dogs, small dogs old ones, or young.

I am opening my house to sitting as I enjoying helping others to have a great holiday knowing their fur babies are in a safe & happy place while you are away. Kennels are often very loud stressful places and often pets don' get the attention they need, I even though the staff trying in busy periods there r just too many kids for less staff. I have first-hand experience and I have worked in kennels when I was much younger. So I my home I ensure everyone gets as much of my time & love.

We walk daily about 1-2hrs (depending on the dog) and play with toys etc to ensure everyone has

a good time for at least a few hours in different periods during the day.

Guest pets will sleep inside at night and have access to outside during the day to come and go as they please.

I don' have any kids and few others guest that visit. Pets will be cared for as one of my own (so spoiled rotten).

Riss was FANTASTIC. The minute I met her and her 2 cute fur babies I felt immediately comfortable and confident Engie would be well looked after - and he really was. Riss was really easy to talk with and went beyond to help accommodate my little special needs old chi. She gave him lots of extra care including a bath after his accident .

Riss also gave me some very valuable information and instruction on massage therapy to help Engie's struggling legs.

I was very happy with Engelbert's stay with Riss and I highly recommend her as a great carer of your special fur babies.
