Hi! I'm Roxanne, am a 23 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.
Highly recommend Roxanne our nervous rescue dog who really doesn’t like anybody except us loved Roxanne
Roxanne was outstanding with our two cats and greyhound, and she was a wonderful house guest. Strongly recommend her! Our animals LOVED her and were very happy when she came back for a second stay.
