About Sonia

**currently on a world trip! Will eventually get back to Australia, however I don't have a timeline yet. If you're a past client, please message me on Whatsapp and I can recommend you someone else in the meantime or update you when I'll be back :) **

Hello everybody!

My name is Sonia. I am a 20-something girl from Italy, now wandering around the world.

My pet sitting journey started with cats. I was around 12 and, as I couldn't get a cat myself, I thought about taking care of my neighbours' cat. I fell in love with animals this way and I was finally able to get not 1 but 6 cats! 😻

Since taking care of animals is something that passionate me, I started to learn about animal behaviour and to take care of dogs as well. I have now experience with rescue dogs, farm (and working) dogs and I have some basics of dog training!

In my years of pet sitting experience, I also took care of farm & smaller animals such as hamsters, birds, tropical animals and much more!

I know how pets can suffer when their owner is not home with them, and I want them to feel loved and cared as much as I can even when their family is far away!

I work as a marketer from an office just twice a week and I run my business on the side: I am loving the laptop lifestyle! This means I can be as flexible as you need and I don't have really strict schedules to follow.

I love doing overnight house sits job because I can fully focus on your pet! I usually arrive early in the morning or at the time you are leaving and can wait for you to arrive back home!

Mi casa es tu casa so I will take care of your home the same way I would with mine. Watering plants, collecting mails, putting out the bins and collecting them and other light housekeeping duties.

oh and of course, pictures of your puppy in funny poses are included ;)

**For my recurring and past clients: please message me on Whatsapp to confirm availability :) **

Sonia filled in for us after another prebooked sitter let us down for a 2 week overseas trip. It was a big job, with an anxious rescue dog, another dog and 2 cats. All were in good health on our arrival home and there were no issues. She excelled in communication, answering all messages promptly and actually contacted us back about our enquiries when she said she would etc. something I find many sitters don't, especially in the meet and greet stage. We received honest feedback and daily messages and photos. She is genuine to her profile and did a good job. Thanks Sonia.
