About Saira

Hi, my names Saira. I'm 28 and live in Geelong.

I have a horse named Sam, dog named Bronx and a cat named Gizmo. I have had many pets in my past, rats, fish, Guinea pigs, hermit crabs and birds.

I used to work at a vet and had been approached many times for pet sitting, I have been pet sitting for over 5 years now and have regular families who pre book me.
I love pet sitting in the clients home as the pets are more comfortable and in routine, I'm happy to do desensitisation visits as some fur friends are quite nervous and anxious with new people.

I will maintain your home (bringing in mail, putting bins out and bringing them back in, pick up poo, change litter, leave the house as I arrived, I will wipe everything down, water plants, vacuum and clean the dishes I use) whilst looking after your pet during the stay period, I send picture updates as much as possible or with request, I understand how hard it is to be away from your fur children, I'm happy to do daily walks, poop clean ups, medication if required. Can medicate pets, preferably not injections as not trained.

Can provide basic grooming such as trims around eyes, bathing and brushing. Can use medicated shampoo if required.

If you would like me to do a day visit, I'm happy to stay with your pet for a few hours including a quick tidy up if required and general loving, grooming and medication if required.

I can walk your dog for however long suits yourself and your furry friend, it's hard to give a time of walking as all dogs are different, age, breed etc. can discuss on messages.

When I'm house/pet sitting majority of the time I'm with the pet, unless I'm at work which is Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm.

Dog walking & day visits will be before & after work hours, pet sitting/house sitting is Monday - Sunday


Can provide references from current/previous pet sitting families 

Pet sitting is best suited in your home as my cat and dog don't like sharing their home.

If you have any questions please reach out to me, I usually book out around Easter and Christmas

I look forward to meeting some new fur friends in the near future. 

Thanks,

Saira :)

Saira was fantastic and came and met Hugo before her stay learning his and our house’s idiosyncrasies. Nothing was a bother. Sent thru pictures throughout his stay and kept me updated. Would highly recommend.
