About Kate

Hello! I am a 28 year old drama and 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 also have irregular hours so am usually available to walk dogs in the middle of the day while you’re at work.

*** Please note: I live in a unit and am unable to offer overnight boarding for dogs or cats. As I do not have a car, I may have to decline places that are difficult to access by public transport or have infrequent services. ***

Kate was great with my anxious staffy. So nice to come home to a relaxed, happy pup 🙂.
