Hello, I'm Ben and I am available and eager to assist you and your pet through thick and thin. I grew up in a very animal centric household; dogs, cats, goats, horse, crow, rabbit, ducks and more. My mum had dog training experience and a big heart so whatever turned up on our doorstep generally became a part of the family. Our eclectic hoard of critters had diverse needs and requirements so I have a plethora of experience and a calm, soothing manner that has been tried and tested on both cute and dangerous animals.
Things are a bit more relaxed now with just two cats of my own that I rescued from a streetcorner as kittens and raised to be fine and upstanding beasts, and my housemates cranky old cat. So I still have plenty of time, energy and love for any other animals that pass through my life.
I live in the Box Hill area so I am able to work across the Eastern suburbs, but if you're unsure if you're outside of my service area don't hesitate to check with me. I have flexible availability for your pets entertainment and care needs.
I'm not available for house sitting, but feel free to contact me and discuss any additional needs or extra hours that your animal friend may require. I may still be able to offer you my excellent skills and services as my hours of availability as very flexible (Morning, Afternoon and Evenings).
Things to expect when booking me; for house visits I will attend to all the standard food, litter or toilet requirements as well as spend quality one-on-one time with your pet. For instance, if your cat is indoor only I will ensure it gets daily playtime to burn off energy, or for calmer less active pets some quality couch and cuddle time. For dogs (or energetic cats with harnesses) I will gladly play with them outdoors or walk them per your requirements. I am very happy to also bring in daily mail and water any plants that will need it while you are away. Let me know if your pet requires grooming too as I am happy to also cover that in my visits. Generally I expect visits to last around 20-40mins, and dog walks about 30-45mins but it does depend on you and your pets unique needs, again don't hesitate to discuss with me.
I highly recommend Ben. He took amazing care of my dog on her walks, sending regular pics. Great at handling dogs, friendly, caring and responsible. Really appreciated his help in going above and beyond with checking her water bowl and being available for an emergency.
It’s been a pleasure to have Ben to look after our shy little cat, I would highly recommend his services. You can very much trust him!
Awesome communication, you can feel is genuinely caring about your pet.
