About Sophia

G’day! I’m Sophia.

I mainly service the Port Melbourne/South Melbourne/Middle Park/Albert Park area for visits. For pets outside that radius I stay over and look after your pet in the comfort of their own home.

If you’re new to Pawshake, I highly recommend you check out some of my reviews from other pet owners, most were new users and are now recurring bookings.

PET MINDING/PET SITTING

I know what it's like to want to go away for the weekend/holidays and have to leave behind your little pet(s)! I love looking after your pet in the comfort of their own home.

DOG WALKING*

My dog walking tends to suit professionals who aren’t able to walk their pups in the morning before work or in the arvo after work.

*Please enquire to confirm availability as I work 9-5.30 and accept overlapping bookings, this means I might not be available in the morning for a walk but I might be available after work (and vice versa).

ABOUT ME

- I work in advertising. It’s a great gig, so I look after pets on the side because I LOVE THEM. Sometimes pups come into the office with me and get cuddled by everyone on the team.

- I’m fairly active so I can definitely run around/after/with your pup.

- I have 3 little cats, my partner looks after them when I’m away and sometimes he accompanies me when I visit pets or walk dogs (what can I say, we’re both animal lovers!)

- I volunteer at Lort Smith Animal Hospital, where I look after little cats transitioning to adoption as well as emergency welfare.

HOUSE RULES

- Pet safety: Dogs are on lead unless I feel it is safe to be offlead. Safety is a top priority for me.

- Weather: Dog walks are cancelled/ dramatically shortened in the event of heavy rain. Indoor activities are still an option though!

Anna, 2019-11-19

I've been consistently begging Sophia to move in on a permanent basis to look after my pets, but she has refused, citing 'ongoing pawshake commitments.' As usual, super impressed and reassured. She's my first port of call when I know I'm going to be away. Will be using again.

PROFESSIONAL PET OWNER! Professionally, I'm a graphic designer. I'm a cat owner myself. In the past I've had (or lived with someone who owns) cats, dogs, chickens, fish. I've also had (albeit limited) exposure to lizards, rats, and ferrets. I know a thing or two about looking after pets, that's for sure.
