Hi! I'm Roxanne, am a 22 year old uni student and animals are my absolute favourite thing - love talking about them, learning about them, watching them and interacting with them. I've grown up with pets and currently share a home with three cats (Leunig, Ivy and Cashew) and a king charles spaniel (Ziggy), who are all very much part of the family (Zig sleeps in my bed).
I worked at a dog grooming salon for over two years washing the dogs before their haircuts and walking the day-care dogs. Because of this job I have experience working with dogs of many sizes and temperaments (and have loved working with all of them) and am confident handling dogs for baths and walks. I also handled a number of blind/deaf dogs, as well as pups that had recently been injured or undergone surgery.
I volunteered with Delta Therapy Dogs at an aged care facility with my own dog for close to two years, before he got a little too old and grumpy to enjoy himself anymore.
As well as this I have experience both housesitting and petsitting, for cats, dogs and chickens. However, I can follow instructions well and am happy to look after any other pets like fish, birds, rabbits etc. I'm a clean and responsible person, so will leave your home as you left it.
While petsitting I will spend as much time with your pets as you/they want me to, and will keep them brushed and clean. I’m happy to walk any dog/s (or cats!) as many times a day as they require, plus playing with any toys they have. Since I have my own animals I am well aware of the importance of a regulated diet for them, so will feed your pets only on your schedule.
I also love photographing pets/animals, so will definitely send you lots of photo updates while you’re away.
Roxanne did a wonderful job looking after BC. She sent us regular updates and BC looked very happy when we returned from our trip. We would definitely recommend Roxanne to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
I was so lucky to have found Roxanne to look after my dog David ! I felt instantly at ease letting Roxanne take care of David , she is definitely a pet whisperer! David was so well looked after and Roxanne was so kind to send me photos of him while I was away. My house was in immaculate condition and David looked very happy !
I will definitely use Roxanne again!
