About Tahlea

Hey there, Tahlea here!

A little bit about me

I’m 20 years old and have been blessed to have spent my life growing up around animals. This year (and hopefully for many more years to come!) I want to make positive contributions within the animal community and I think Pawshake is a great network for that.

I hope I can provide some love into the life of your pet family during the times you, unfortunately, cannot. What can I do? I am open to walking your dogs (or cats - if that's what you do!), as well as making scheduled home visits to check up on your pets and remind them that you'll be home soon!

If you would like, we can set up a time to meet beforehand so I can even meet your pets too. Getting to know yourself and your pet will help me to provide the best care I can while you are away, and hopefully, put your worries aside by getting to know me!

Dog Walking your precious pups

Sometimes there are never enough hours in the day, especially when it comes to fitting in a walk for your beloved dogs. I am available to come and walk your pooch: morning, midday, afternoon, and evening!

As a dog walker, I understand that each dog has different levels of physical abilities, so we can go for any amount of time between a short 15-minute walk or an exciting one hour walk.

(If supplied) On our walks I can take:

  • Collapsible dog bowl + I can supply cold water.
  • Bag of food/treats.
  • Poop bags.
  • Toys.
Please ensure to inform me if there are any specific things you do while walking your dog, e.g. stopping and waiting before crossing the road, permission into dog parks, no barking, etc. I am not equipped to transport dogs by car to other areas for our walk, so we will be staying within your neighbourhood.

Cat Sitting your furry felines

I live with two cats who are the exact opposite of one another - one is playful, silly, and won't stop meowing until I pet her; the other is quiet and shy but loves cuddles when she decides that's what she wants! Each cat has its own personality, and as a cat sitter, that is something I can cater to for your babies.

Whether they want never-ending pats, a person to play with, or someone to snuggle next to, I can be a friendly and warm presence wherever needed. Forming a bond and friendly relationship with cats can sometimes take a lot of time and effort, and I am most willing to do that with lots of patience and love!

Home Visits for your best friends

I know how hard it is to be away from your pets, so I am more than happy to give them a visit to make sure they're doing okay! My home visits can range from a quick 10-minute pop in to a fun-filled hour of love and care - you will have the choice to predetermine how long our visits will go for! I am available to complete up to three home visits a day.

Activities can include:

  • Food and water changing.
  • Litter box changing or poop patrol in the backyard (taking pets out to the toilet or cleaning up the backyard of poos).
  • Playtime!
  • Lots and lots of cuddles.
  • Brushing to groom your pet's gorgeous coats (if a brush is supplied).
  • Leisure walk (if pre-booked).
  • Casual obedience training - running through commands they may already know to keep them mentally stimulated.
House Sitting and Overnight Stays

If you prefer to leave your fur babies at home in an environment they know and are comfortable in, I also offer house sitting where I stay at your home overnight with your pets and keep them company until morning, where they will wake up to my friendly face!

I believe it's always important to make sure our pets feel safe and secure during times where their normal routine has been disrupted, and that's why staying throughout the night can offer them that extra bit of stability to keep them happy and calm.

During multiple days of consecutive overnight stays, there will be times when I will need to take out a few hours of the day for my own needs, (which can be discussed beforehand) but I will always return to spend the night with your pet family!

Thanks so much,

Tahlea

Tahlea is effervescent and obviously loves what she's doing. My 2 dogs are aalways excited to see her as she gives lots of cuddles. She posts reports on the walks very quickly after dropping the dogs home. The notes are very thorough.. where they went, dog behaviour, interactions and weather. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
