About Astrid

About me

I am a friendly and responsible keeper determined to dedicate her life to the care of animals. Animals have always been my passion, I grew up with all kinds of pets (dogs, snakes, birds, rodents, and fish) and enjoy the company of any kind of animal. I recently move from Mexico city to start a new life in Melbourne with my husband, and I plan to study veterinary nursing or zoology in a couple of years. Unfortunately, I had to leave my beloved Chihuahua Archie in Mexico, which was extremely painful because we were inseparable. Therefore, I miss the presence of a pet in my life, and will love yours as if it was mine. Sadly, I am not allowed to have pets in my apartment, that is why I only offer home visits and pet walking services; Although I would love to have your pets with me whenever I move to a larger place allowing pets.

As I just moved, I am currently not engaged in any activity so I have a flexible schedule and all the time to take care of your pet. I know how difficult it is to leave your pet while going on a trip, hence I will be very happy if I could make this process a little easier for you and your friend. I enjoy walking in Melbourne's parks, beaches and in the city, hence I can assure you that your pet will be busy must of the time while you are gone.

My motivation is to become a pet sitter is to save enough money to finance my veterinary nursing studies. Additionally, working with animals is my dream and this is a perfect opportunity to meet all types of pets and share my love with them. I like to feel that this job helps to prevent many animals from feeling sad while their owners are gone, and it fills me with great pride to be part of it.

Experience

I have experience looking after many kinds of pets, as a pet owner and as a pet sitter. I was a pet sitter in Mexico for a similar business (cuida mi mascota) and just loved the work. I am usually the one who takes care of my family and friends pets, while they are on holidyas. Additionally, I had the opportunity to sit for three different dogs while I lived in Germany in 2017, so I am already familiar to sitting pets overseas. I like keeping the owners updated about their pets while they are away (with pictures, videos, and messages), and will follow any specific instruction that I receive. I have sitted for pets that require occassional medication, however I do not offer to administer injections. I take this job very seriously, I am very responsible, organized, and will dedicate all my attention and love to your pet. I promise to walk and play with your pet everyday (if walkable), my goal is to make it feel beloved and happy while you are away.
