NOTE: Unfortunately, due to severe allergies, I cannot accommodate any overnight requests with indoor cats.
Hello and Welcome! My name is Maia and I am a 28-year-old teacher from California. I moved to Melbourne two and a half years ago to commence a masters of teaching program at the University of Melbourne and I loved it so much I decided to stay.
I love being around, learning about and caring for animals more than anything else in the world. I have a doggy "brother" back home that I miss dearly. I also volunteered as a dog walker at my local animal shelter back in the United States. Unfortunately, I am unable to keep animals at my current address. It is for these reasons that I decided to join Pawshake. I am pretty flexible am usually able to accommodate for any short notice changes. Due to the hours at my teaching job, I am no longer able to offer dog walking services but if you are near a train line/public transport I am happy to house sit or offer home visits during the school term. During school holidays I am available for all serivces.
I am CPR qualified for humans, dogs, and cats. Please check out the skills and photos sections of my profile, for more information and pictures, relating to my previous experiences working with animals. I'm looking forward to meeting you and your fur-babies.
Maia was a perfect house and pet sitter. Our 2 dogs had a wonderful time with her. Communication (photos) were lovely to receive. Our house was perfectly looked after. One of our dogs is quite old so Maia took great care of him as well as our younger pup. Thanks so much.
Maia took great care of our bulldog and kept us updated with photos throughout her stay!
In my "day job", I am a high school English and Japanese teacher. I will look after your fur babies as if they were my own. I take the responsibility of caring for your family members very seriously.
I have a current police check and working with children check. Character and references from long-term clients are available on request.
My experience: I have owned dogs all my life. Prior to joining Pawshake I had previously pet sat, groomed, and walked dogs belonging to neighbours and family friends.
