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 great and my 4 cats were well fed when I arrived home. Would happily book Kate again and recommend her to others.

Kate was awesome! Our puppy chased her out when she was leaving too. She was gentle, responsible and kind. Would 100% rebook when required!
