About Karin

I am a Swedish animal lover who has 5 years experience of working as a certified veterinary nurse in Australia. I love traveling and I have lived in New Zealand, Luxembourg, Australia and Hong Kong in the past 10 years. I have 2 cats that my husband and I adopted when they were kittens and they came with us to Hong Kong when we lived there.

I am kind, positive and trustworthy and I will always put the animals first and make sure they are comfortable and have everything they need. I'm an equestrian and I love spending time with horses, as a teenager I spent most of my free time at the local riding school looking after people's horses and dogs.

I have done dog walking, house and pet sitting before (not with Pawshake) and I have used Pawshake pet sitters to look after my cats while we were away on holiday so I know how it all works.

With my vet nursing experience I am able to administer medication to animals who need it (oral meds, topical meds and injections) and I have basic dog training skills. I offer dog walks 20-60min, house visits 1-2 hours per visit and house sitting when I look after your animal/animals and your house/apartment if you are away on holiday (water plants, take in the mail, keep the premises clean, secure and tidy).

I'm looking forward to meeting you and your animals!

Karin was a great sitter for my two cats! They warmed to her really quickly, she sent lots of photos and updates so I was never concerned about their wellbeing, and I returned home to a very clean and tidy home and two very relaxed boys. Would definitely have Karin sit for us again - thanks Karin!

Karin clearly makes our sometimes nervous cats feel comfortable in her care. We were very happy to return from our trip to relaxed cats and a well looked after home.
