About Shawna

Qualified & Professional Pet Sitting!

I'm offering potential in-home sitting (depending on dates/location) but would preferably host your pets here at my home in Lara. We have five, fully fenced acres and your dog is welcome to roam the outside or spend their time inside with my pack. My partner and I both have experience in dog/animal training and like to return our 'long stay' guests with a new trick or two to show off.

*Can only host animals larger than 15kg at my home if they are DESEXED. Any cats will be kept INSIDE.*

Personal Experience:

• Work for Dogmovers, as an animal attendant/carer and driver. Every week I handle dogs from Chihuahuas to Great Danes. We transport other species too such as goats, poultry, reptiles and other birds and small animals.

• Current cat/kitten foster carer

• Volunteered at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary/Currumbin Wildlife Hospital for 3 years on the Gold Coast

(worked with native and exotic species including avians, mammals, amphibians, reptiles)

• Wildlife carer

I have abundant experience in medicating all species via oral, topical, subcutaneous and intravenous routes. If your cat, dog or other critter requires 'tricky' medication, rest assured they will receive it stress free.

I am currently working as an animal attendant/driver for DOGMOVERS.

Every Tuesday and Thursday I drive west of Melbourne (Ballarat, Bendigo, Bacchus Marsh) with a dog trailer so pick up/drop off from towns further out is possible.

All my cats and dogs are fully up to date with their vet work/vaccinations. My elder border collie has still not yet been desexed though and as such, does not get along with (aggressive) undesexed males.

I am happy to take care of any animal/breed in your own home but I cannot host ANY animal over 15kg at my property unless it is DESEXED.

Shawna was great. The dogs loved their time with her and we will certainly be coming back again.
