Hello! I am currently in my first year of studies in the Animal Science course in Murdoch University. I own a Jack Russell Terrier, adopted 7 years ago and he is currently 9 years.
I provide dog walking and pet sitting services - bringing your dog out for an hour or two around your neighbourhood or spending time with your pets at home for a longer period, playing with them, brushing them, watching over them. Do note that I only provide housesitting services over the weekends (Friday-Sundays only). I'd love to take care of your pet(s) like how I do with mine, with lots and lots of love!
I have more than 8 years of experience with handling small animals (dogs/cats) through volunteer work at various animal shelters. At the shelters, I have gained many experiences such as dog walking, showering, feeding, and swimming. As time passed, I learnt new skills such as to understand dog's behaviour during socialisation, knowing if they are uncomfortable, shy, playful or aggressive. Whenever a dog has a wound or is sick, I am also able to apply medication or do force feeding of oral medication if required. I also did photography for the shelter dogs, to promote them for adoption posts on social media. As one of the shelter's activity, I signed up for a 8-week basic obedience training course with one of the shleter dogs there, choosing one that lacks confidence to help her gain confidence outdoors and listen to the commands I give her even when she is terrified of the environment, which actually helps to calm her down alot more.
At my full time job at a doggie daycare, I could use the skills that I learnt during volunteering, which actually helped me alot. During the period of 2 years at the doggie daycare, I have attained a certificate of hydrotherapy for small animals and went through a first aid course, and for a day course on basic grooming for dogs.
Rest assured that your pet(s) will be under good care when they are with me! They will definitely have lots of fun and love :-)
Felicia was amazing with both my cats, very trustworthy and she treated them like they were her own pets. They really enjoyed her company and she kept me updated daily on there well being. Highly recommendable.
Felicia proved to be an excellent sitter for our old, deaf, beloved, but still quite lively staffy X dog. We were away for 4 days and normally he would pine and not eat much while we are away, but Felicia gave him loads of attention and love and spent way more time with him than was stipulated, and he was very comfortable and ate well. She sent many photos and videos to keep us updated and assure us he was in good hands, including when he was on walks. Felicia is an intelligent and diligent young person, easily taking in all the details about regimen and the house and we shall certainly be making use of her services again in the future.
