Hi I'm Kate :)
I am an animal lover but I am particularly obsessed with dogs.
I am really wanting my own dog/s, but live too transiently (or did, pre covid) to commit to my own just yet. I have walked dogs for RSPCA as well as privately so have experience with a variety of dogs and behaviours.One day I will own land and several animals, but for now I'm stoked to get the opportunity to spend time with other people's animals!
I work full time as a Youth Worker/ Case Manager but my schedule is flexible and I work from home a few days a week. I prefer to stay in your home as it is usually more comfortable for the animal/s. I know that trusting someone with your animal and house is a big deal and I see being a pet sitter as a massive privilege. In terms of dog walking, my favourite spots to take them is to the beach or on a hike.
I'm open to any enquiries and can fit around you, however a home within a 15km radius of me is preferred. If your dog is anxious and struggles to adjust I am happy to walk your dog and build rapport prior to house sitting.
Services I offer during a house sit are:
-dog walking up to twice per day
-maintaining your home and level of cleanliness
- updates via text including photos
Thanks for reading!
Kate did a great job looking after Jasper at our home. We were kept up-to-date with photos and text messages. Everything went very smoothly while we were away and we would have no doubt working with or recommending Kate again.
Kate house sat for us for 5 nights. She gave our dog Tayla a couple of walks before the house sit so it was great to know Tayla would be comfortable with her. We came back to a nice relaxed dog and clean and tidy house. Thanks so much Kate.
