About Derek

Hi my name is Derek. I have lived in Geelong for the past 2 years, but I am originally from Canada. Growing up I have had experience looking after dogs, lizards and cats. (Unfortunely, no experience looking after bears or beavers!)

Currently I have two dogs named Rocky and Mac. They are both whippets and excellent lads! Like most whippets they are very anxious, so I have excellent knowledge to calmly and carefully handle them and other dogs of that nature. Also, Rocky has an autoimmune disease, so I have had experience monitoring symptoms and administering oral daily medicaiton.

I personally love meeting and interacting with animals to get to know their personalities. Though my two dogs wouldn't enjoy have a part-time roommate, I'm more then happy to walk your dogs and do house visits. If you are away from your home I am happy to help with bins, poo pick-up and bring in the mail! I will also ensure to send you a daily update for your pet.

If I sound like a fit for you and your fur baby/pal I am happy to do meet and greet to get to know you and your pets needs to make sure I am the right fit. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Derek was great! He was friendly, trustworthy and communicated really well and sent a message and pictures of our pets each day. They were all happy and healthy when we returned from holiday.
