About Alicia

As an animal lover since I was a child, my aim as a pet-sitter is to provide owners with a quality pet-minding service while they are away, one that I would want for my own pets. I offer home visits, which means I come to your pet to check on them, while they stay in the comfort of their own home.

I have extensive experience with a broad range of pets and am able to care for animals including but not limited to dogs, cats, chickens and other birds, fish, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and mice. I understand doggy behaviour well, utilise gentle positive reinforcement and have a diploma in Canine Behaviour Science and Technology.

I can guarantee your fur-baby will be very well looked after and treated as if they were my own. Whatever individual interaction your pet wants and needs I aim to provide it, so you can come home to a happy and contented pet. I send daily text updates and photos so you can take comfort in the fact that your pet is being well cared for :) 

What is included in a home visit:

  • Feed your pet/s
  • Change their drinking water
  • Poop scoop
  • Take out solids/change kitty litter
  • Spend time bonding with your pet/s…this can include cuddles/pats, throwing the ball, engaging in play time and any other activities which you specify that they enjoy.
  • Bring in your mail and newspapers
  • Put out and bring in rubbish bins when required
  • Please feel free to message me via Pawshake if you have any questions at all.

    We were super happy with Alicia. She is an excellent communicator and was very caring with our 'girls'. She even watered some thirsty plants as weather was extra hot, and collected eggs and checked our chooks were ok.

    Thanks so much Alicia !
