About Kate

Hello! I am a 28 year old improv teacher living in Newtown. I grew up with dogs, cats, rats, mice and birds and have adored animals all my life. I love animals of all shapes and sizes (especially my mum's Chihuahua Daisy) but I am unable to have pets in my current home so I would love to look after yours!

I have been working with Pawshake since 2016 and have over ten years experience with dogs and cats including puppies, elderly pets and rescue pets. I can walk multiple pups at once and I can come and visit your pets in your home to give them food, water and cuddles. I can also house sit for you (stay overnight with your pets in your home), water your plants and take in your mail.

I live very close to Camperdown Rest Memorial Park so I can take your pooches there for a run with other dogs (if they are safe to go off lead) or to the O'Dea Reserve fenced dog park. As I work in the arts, I have irregular hours so am usually available to walk dogs in the middle of the day while you’re at work.

Breakdown of services

Doggy day care - I'll look after your pet/s in your home (up to 3 hours). Longer doggy day care is available for a higher, negotiable fee. Please note: I live in a unit and am unable to offer overnight boarding for dogs or cats.

Dog walking - I'll take your pooch for a walk, including a visit to a fenced or non-fenced dog park for a run and a play (1 hour).

One or two home visit/s per day - I'll drop in to your home to check on or feed your pet/s (up to 1 hour).

House sitting - I'll stay in your home overnight to take care of your pet/s, including feeding, walking and play.

Kate was wonderful, she arrived on time, communicated clearly and I could tell Eugene was comfortable around her immediately. Thanks Kate we would love to have you sit Eugene again ^_^
