About Katie

About me:

I work casually in catering and events and have free time I want to spend with quality animal time! I like to spend time outside, going on walks and hikes a couple of times a week. I think it would be great to bring dogs along with me! I am also a creative person, I have lots of hobbies including painting, writing, photography and videography.

I am offering my services as a dog walker and pet sitter because I already do so many activites that would be fun for animals too and would love to provide an opportunity for a pet to have things to do while their owner is away. I want to get my own pet soon so this would be a win win situation!!

Skills:

I am a gentle and patient person who will match the vibe of the animal. If they are playful and intense, I will play with them as well as soothe them with pats and cuddles. If they are an animal that needs a bit more time to build trust, I am here for that too! I will always pay attention to the pets needs to make them as comfortable as possible.

My experience with animals:

  • Baxter: 1 year old Westy terrier who lives with my parents. He's a very playful and high energy puppy who loses his mind when he sees me since he knows he's up for some long play sessions together.
  • Luna: 6 year old cat who lives upstairs. Luna is my roommates cat who mostly keeps to herself. She takes a while to warm up to new people but when she trusts them she is very affectionate and cuddly, you just have to know when to give her space and let her come to you!
  • Gus, Anouk and Atticus: My partner's parent's dogs, 2 Great Danes and a Vizsla. I walk them frequently with my partner, Tom and have a deep love for big dogs and the way they can hug you back!

  • Alice and Penny: A few years ago, I had my lovely pet rats that have unfortunately passed away. I adore rats and hope to get some in the future again!
  • Our House:

    My partner, Tom and I live in the downstairs area of a house that we share with two roommates Olivia and Elsa upstairs and Elsa's cat, Luna. We have our own lounge area separate from the rest of the house that we can close the door for privacy. We also have a small outdoor area that we are working on building a garden.

    My partner, Tom, works with animals and is also very passionate about animal welfare and conservation. We are a ecoconscious household and all share an affinity for any kind of animal.

    Thank you for reading my profile, I hope you and your pet have a good day!
