Hi! I am a part time university student who was born and raised here in Canberra. My family have had rescue dogs for most of my life, and I have missed helping out with walks and pet care since I moved.
I have cared for dogs of various sizes and temperaments, senior dogs with special care needs, anxious dogs, and dog aggressive dogs. I have done live in pet sitting before for a family member and pride myself on always leaving a place as clean or cleaner than I found it. I work from home so I can be with your dog most of day and could provide at least two walks and play time. I have given family dogs perscribed oral and topical medicines, but would of course need advice on how to do so with an individual dog as they all react differently. I am happy to do walks of whatever length your dog/s is/are most comfortable with, and will take their needs into consideration when picking a route.
Dog walks can be anywhere between 20 minutes and 1 hour depending on the exercise needs of the dog.
For check ins I will be there for at least an hour per check in and I can be there at any time you prefer.
For dog sitting I will be there for at least 18 hours a day but likely more, and can stay all day if needed on request.
I typically prefer to do walks in the mornings, particularly in summer as it gets hot. Walks can start between 7.30am and 10.30am, but I could adjust for a repeat customer.
PLEASE NOTE: I have a cat allergy, so I could do dog walks for a house that has a cat but could not do check ins or pet sitting. Also I do not have a driver's licence. I am happy to travel a bit to get to your place. I also would not feel comfortable pet sitting for a dog that is less than 6 months old.
Zoe looked after Nellie an aged border with health issues. Not an easy dog sit. Nellie took to Zoe straight away and seemed very happy and content during the dog sit. We went away feeling assured Nellie was in safe hands. Zoe sent photos and messages and made sure Nellie had her medications. We were very grateful for Zoe’s assistance.
Second time booking Zoe to petsit Rosie for 2 days while I’m travelling for work. and couldn’t be happier - great communication, aware of and attentive to Rosie’s needs, considerate of our home. I can rest easy knowing everything is being well taken care of. No hesitation in recommending, have already re-booked !
