Hi there, I'm Ryan.
It can be difficult combining my love of travel and love of animals, however over the past 8 years I've found the perfect balance in taking care of fur-babies both locally here in Melbourne, and further afield right across Australia and the United States.
Exceptional service and security is assured as I bring my vast home and pet sitting experience along with a National Police Background Check and Working With Children Check (Yes - I understand your pets are your children!).
I'm currently studying psychology online - so your pet will receive the endless attention that comes with me taking yet another well deserved study break to go for a run to the park.
Our local neighbourhood is lucky to have access to some incredible dog friendly spaces, from the puppy-picnic friendly Victoria Gardens to a much more energetic run right around Albert Park Lake, there are countless options that will sufficiently tire out the most energetic of pups (and their sitter).
If you live further afield we will choose a suitable route around your local neighbourhood park/beach/bush trail ensuring your dog and I will be out for an hour-long walk at least twice a day.
My current work and study flexibility means that I will be able to spend the majority of my day with your pets so they can seemlessly maintain the walk/meal/sleep schedule they have become accustomed to.
I'm adept at taking care of older animals, as well as pets with a spectrum of anxiety disorders and the understandable post-lockdown separation anxiety.
I pride myself on returning your home to you even cleaner than when you left, and am happy to assist with any other tasks you may need help with while you're out of town (administration, general tasks, light home maintanance, etc.) I'm only a call away at any hour.
Please don't hesitate to contact me to organise a commitment free meet and greet, so I can answer any questions and proudly show off some of my reviews from my wonderful clients.
Looking forward to sitting for you soon!
Engaging Ryan was a great success! We had never used anyone but family to look after our dog, now 15 years old, but on this occasion no-one was available so time to think laterally! We really felt that the best place for Moe was in his own home with his own bed, so found Pawshake through a Google search. Right from the start, Ryan’s profile impressed me- it was professional, he was very experienced, the vibe was warm and friendly and his reviews were excellent. We weren’t able to meet personally before the booking, but Ryan FaceTimed us and any doubts we had about leaving Moe with a stranger disappeared! Ryan was warm, relaxed, asked us questions about Moe’s management and took notes, and after the call, we felt confident that all would be well..... which it was. Ryan kept us informed with photos and texts and left our home spick and span. We really felt very relaxed on our few days away knowing that Moe was well looked after. His whole demeanour was relaxed but confident and in control, and any requests or instructions we had for him were met with a can do/ no drama attitude. We heartily recommend Ryan’s services. If you, like us, were hesitant in inviting a total stranger into your home, leaving your keys and entrusting your beloved animal family member into their care- be brave, go on that break, Ryan will take good care of the rest. 🙂
Great care as always 😊
