About Annika

I am available for dog walking, and pet sitting at your home, as well as to check in and feed your pets for a day or overnight as needed, with experience in short and longer-term bookings. 

Services available include: 

- I am available morning, afternoon and evening to your convenience and reasonable request. I am happy to adapt to your furry friend's schedule! 

- For walks, I can provide 30-60 minutes of activity. 

- I have experience in administering oral and injectable medications as needed. 

- For home visits and stays, I am happy to stay as long as needed, with experience in 1-20+ days in caring for pets. I am also happy to water your plants and bring in the mail, and follow personalised instructions and security measures to ensure that you feel that your pet(s) and home are in good hands. 

About me: 

By training, I am a clinical dentist with 7 years of experience looking after wonderful people and families in the Tasmanian community. However, I am currently completing a PhD in intervention science at the University of Tasmania whilst working from home full-time and no longer working clinically. This, fortunately, allows me to be fairly flexible with my time and schedule. 

Throughout my life, I've had the privilege of being surrounded by animals, having grown up on a small farm in the south of Tasmania with a particular affinity for dogs. This lifelong companionship has enriched my understanding of various dog breeds, particularly those of medium to large sizes. I currently own two pugs (Max and Teddy) who are absolutely spoiled. Teddy, in particular, was an anxious puppy that we have nurtured into a confident and energetic dog! I've cherished every moment spent tending to these furry friends, and the bonds I've formed with them have been nothing short of amazing.

How I can help: 

Overall, my experience extends beyond just the care of my own pets; I wholeheartedly enjoy looking after other people's beloved companions as if they were a part of my own family. It brings me immense joy to ensure their well-being, provide love, and create a safe, nurturing environment. The trust that pet owners place in me to care for their furry family members is a responsibility I hold dear, and I approach it with the utmost dedication and care. I will ensure that you feel at ease whilst away from your pets, knowing that they are in good hands. 

I can tend to a diverse range of requirements and dispositions, with the flexibility to tailor my caregiving approach to each pet's unique needs and temperament. I also have cared for various pets, including horses, ponies, chickens, birds, bunnies, and cats. 

I would love to take your dog for walks, feed all pets and check in on them, or stay with them in your home for the day or overnight, with experience in both short and longer-term bookings. 

I look forward to hearing from you and your furry friend.

- Annika

Loved Annika!

We have anxious dogs, and upon first meeting them it can be overwhelming.

However Annika wasn't deterred and they soon settled not long to her being here.

I'm pretty sure they didn't want us to come home, Rory was still looking for her .

Thank you Annika, you were amazing.

Annika was an absolute professional and a pleasure to meet. She took such great care of our beautiful fur babies whilst we were away and sent regular pictures and updates. I could not recommend her high enough🌷🥰
