About Vanessa

My name is Vanessa, I'm 22 and basically I just want to hang out with animals. I'm currently studying a Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design & I'm living at home in Hawthorn East, with my Dad.

I was lucky enough to adopt my beautiful dog Jack last year, he is a Staffy x Bull Arab. He has some issues with over-excitement that I have been spending a lot of time helping him overcome, so I am confident dealing with animals that have some behavioural issues as well as bigger animals (he weighs 30kg). I just love all animals and wish I could spend more time with them. Unfortunately, I can't do sleepovers or have animals at my house with Jack, but on my days off I'm more than happy to have an animal friend for the day for walks and playing, and I can house/pet sit at your place!

I personally enjoy walking & don't take my own dog to off-leash parks, but happy to take your dog to their usual parks or on their usual walks. I can pick up your pet and take them out or stay at their home with them for some company.

I tend to not update my calendar here as my availability changes weekly, so please just contact me!! My availability is most weekdays and some weekends depending on the requirements of the job, just message me with the details and I'll try my best to work with you to achieve the best outcome!

House Sitting

Vanessa house sat for us for 2 weeks in March 2021 while we went on holiday and looked after our rhodesian ridgeback Holly. Vanessa was punctual and courteous and polite. She followed our hose sitting instructions we left for her very well and walked Holly every day. Our home was left relatively clean and tidy. We would recommend Vanessa!

Vanessa is amazing with Bentley! Having walked him a few times now, we're extremely happy to have connected.

Familiar with dog training techniques

This isn't necessarily a skill, but I honestly love every single animal that I encounter. Dog, cat, rabbit, elephant. The list goes on. This means that no matter what type of animal, breed, or personality your pet is I'm more than happy to make sure they are happy and comfy and I wouldn't mind giving them some pats.

I'm no expert but I know a lot about animals just from my own general researching and I am very confident with animals. Whether it be feeding, cuddling, training, or disciplining I often find that I'm very comfortable and so is the animal! I've lived with cats and dogs my whole life, and love meeting different types of animals whenever I can!

I have spent a lot of time training my dog Jack, which hasn't been the easiest, but I've persisted and we are slowly but surely seeing improvements in his behaviour.
