About Kate

My partner and I are animal lovers and I have cared for pets all my life.  We are very attentive and loving and we treat animals like children. We understand it can be worrying to spend time away from your pets so we provide periodic updates on their well being so you can enjoy your holiday with the peace of mind that your pets are being well looked after.

We can accomodate the administration of both oral and injectable medication. We also have extensive experience with dogs that are shy and need some extra help feeling comfortable, dogs with allergies and skin issues, as well as specific food and exercise needs. We are home most of the time but some days we will both be away for the full work day. If you have any requirements regarding anxiety or time alone please contact us to confirm. We also have two dogs of our own that are very friendly with other dogs. 


About my services:
What services do we offer?

Pet sitting
  • We provide full pet sitting services with periodic notifications (with image) of how your pet is doing while you're away.
  • We can assist in special requests such as administering medication, taking care of special needs such as assisting to bring the pet to a vet.

Dog Walking and Backyard Playdates
  • We can provide dog walking or doggy playdates in our backyard
  • Our walks vary in intensity, between 20 mins to an hour, based on the owners request. 
  • Playdates in our backyard is usually an all day activity but it highly depends on the pets energy level.
How many dogs can we board at the same time?
  • As we have two dogs of our own, we can only accomodate for two more pets at the same time.
How much time can we spend with the pets?
  • We can guarantee a high level of supervision of your pet while you're away. At least one of us (me and my partner) should be home. If we ever need to leave the house, it would only be momentary and your pet will be supervised through our indoor and outdoor cameras.
How does pet care fit into our daily or weekly routine and do you work from home or do need to leave the house for work?
  • As both of us have the capacity to work from home, our lifestyle is conducive to dog sitting. As mentioned earlier, if one of us needs to go to work, one stays home to take care of the pets.
  • At least one of us will be home to take care or supervise the pets the majority of the time 
Who will be living in the home and will take care of your pets?
  • It will be myself and my partner, along with our two dogs bella and cocoa.
Where are the guest pets allowed to sleep?
  • Primary they will be allowed to sleep with us in the bedroom, unless stated or requested to be in a different room.
If you have a backyard, what is it like?
  • We have a medium sized grassed and fully fenced backyard.
  • The backyard is fully secured and does not have a direct access to the driveway. 
  • It has plenty of space to let your pet do zoomies and playdates.

This was our first time leaving Kaizer with a pet sitter and we were quite anxious about the whole ordeal however, Kate was very accomodating to all our needs including Kaizer’s. We left Kai with Kate for 4 nights and he was cared for very well. We were kept up to date with heaps of photos and messages while away and I couldn’t recommend her more!

Kate was brilliant. Max loved his stay there. We had regular updates. Kate dealt with a couple of issues with Max's health calmly and expertly. Definitely recommend.
