About Barbara

Hi,

I am a french PhD student in Neurosciences at the Queensland Brain Institut in Saint Lucia. I live in Highgate Hill with my partner in a 1st floor apartment with a beautiful view on the Brisbane river and a park just nearby.

I had a dog (whippet) as a companion since I was 10. My parents have now another whippet named Enigma (He is so cute and smart!). Having a paw companion while being young made me love all 4 legged companions. My partner also have a dog (shetland, ufortunately still in France) and really loves dogs. Back in France I used to regularly go running with the dogs and take care of them.

When I arrived to Australia, I really missed the presence of a dog at home, so I subscribed to Pawshake to be able to interact with dogs and take care of them while helping owners.

As I said before my parents and my partner have dogs so I know all the responsabilities coming along. I was taking the dogs for big walks and runs, feeding them, cleaning after them, taking them to the vet and most important give them all the love they need.

I am working as a researcher, so I can be pretty flexible regarding my schedule if I am advised few days in advance (some of my experiences are planned 2 weeks ahead, usually they are running on Thursday).Thursday is a busy day at work so on this day I would be available only in the evening; other days I can arrange my schedule more easily. During week days, I can do up to 2 walks of 30min and during weekends no limit of frequency or duration. For home visits, during week days, I can stay at least 30min to 1h-1h30 depending on owner's home location (if it is far from Saint Lucia or not). During home visits, I can make a quick walk, give water and food and play a moment with the dog. I can also adapt myself to the owner's specific recuirements.

The apartment has a secured entry so the doggies will not be able to run out. The apartment has a spacious and luminous living room with a big balcony (1-1:10m fence) (unfortunately no backyard). We can arrange the sleeping place according to the dog's habits, it could be in the living room or in the bedroom. For the walks, we have a park just accross the street and the Dutton park is not fare in walking distance.

I really love dogs and I do this primarily to be around them. I will come with pleasure at your place to take care of your buddy or have him or her at my place and take him or her for daily walks. Looking forward to cuddle some doggies!!

Daisy loved her stay at Barbara's house. Everyone got along well (other dogs and people) and Daisy had lots of attention and cuddles. Highly recommended.
