Hi pet owners - My name is Dianne, I moved to Caloundra from Cairns in 2016 and brought my experience as a volunteer dog walker with the Young Animal Protection Society (YAPS) and my reliable and sensitive nature as a pet sitter. I now can also share I've been an active pet sitter & dog walker in Caloundra since 2017.
I have always had animals in my life from small exotics to cats and dogs but due to my career requiring frequent travel I have been unable to devout myself fulltime to pet ownership or to an extensive pet sitting client base.
I am currently working day shift hours (M-F) on the Sunny Coast and would love the pleasure of walking your beloved pooch; - any size/breed/any distance & intensity and/or smothering them with as much love and affection as they desire as your pet sitter in their own surroundings! To better understand their needs and read their body language better, I undertook a certificated course in Dog Emotion & Cognition in 2018 which has also provided me with some basic training tools. I will always be happy to continue your current training with them or introduce some basic training under your guidelines.
More about my services:
A complimentary meet & greet before any confirmed booking is always preferred. This way, both owners & myself can assess my suitability to care & provide for your fur babies. This also provides a great opportunity to see where everything is kept, where they eat & sleep and discuss further details.
Housesitting - Typically, I arrive late afternoon ~4pm and leave early morning (later on weekends lol!) I understand both dogs & their owners all have different needs so of course we can further discuss arrival & departure times. I enjoy taking them for walks and happy to take them out morning & late afternoon under your guidance for duration and distance. Also, to give them a brush if a brush/glove can be provided. I will always do my best to leave your home in the same way I found it and include frequent photo updates of your fur babies, garden watering, putting out bins & collecting mail.
House Visits - Preferably within Caloundra & it’s suburbs only.
Anywhere up to an hour to provide feeding, playing/short walk & cleaning litter trays/picking up poop! Longer daily visits can always be discussed.
Doggie walks - Up to 45 mins depending on needs & on leash only.
Please feel free to contact me anytime as I am already looking forward to meeting you!
Di really treated our dog like it was her own. Great communication and lots of photos which we loved. Thank you again Di xxx
Pet Sitting Superstar!! We recently had Dianne come and look after our 2 dogs and 2 cats in our home and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to mind their fur babies. We hadn’t used an in-home pet sitting service before and we were a little anxious trying it for the first time, but Dianne quickly put our minds at rest with her friendly, calm and professional approach. After booking, Dianne visited for an in depth meet and greet to explain how Pawshake works and to meet the animals. During her stay, Dianne sent several fabulous photos of the gang throughout every day, accompanied by the most precious little stories of what they had been getting up to, it was wonderful to have so much contact. Dianne is clearly very passionate about what she does, and it shows in her attention to even the smallest details. Our house was left beautifully clean and tidy, our pets were all happy and cared for in their own home and we had a very relaxing, stress-free holiday, altogether a wonderful experience. We have booked Dianne for another 2 trips already!!
