Hello! I'm a master's degree student from Finland. I'm currently taking a gap year from my studies and spending a year living in Australia.
Ever since I can remember, I've loved spending time with animals. From a very young age, I have helped look after different animals ranging from hamsters to cats/dogs, and even cows (yes, cows... I lived on a farmonce upon a time).
I grew up in a household where there were always cats of different ages (kittens to more senior felines) and backgrounds (strays/rescues) meaning that I have 20+ years of experience in looking after cats of all temperaments.
I have previously also looked after big and small dogs (including puppies), and been a dog sitter for various acquaintances in addition to the pets I have looked after as a part-time petsitter here in Finland (reviews can be found on my Pawshake profile link).
Due to my flexible schedule, I am able to offer various services ranging from: 1-2 home visits per day, dog walking, dog sitting, cat sitting, and house sitting.
Additionally, depending on my living arrangements in each location, I will also offer doggy daycare and dog boarding (24h/overnight stays) services.
I take pride in being conscientous and reliable meaning that your pet will be my top priority whilst in my care. I also speak both Finnish and English, so feel free to contact me using either language… some basic Swedish and French is also understood with the help of Google translate
I look forward to getting to know many of you lovely pet owners, and especially your pets, during my stay in Australia!
If you have questions, please feel free to send me a message and ask
Tina was absolutely fantastic. When we first met her, it was obvious that she was very familiar with dogs and would be able to manage our slightly naughty 10 month old puppy. Tina updated us about our pets while we were away and sent through photos which we really appreciated. We arrived home to a clean and tidy house, and to very happy animals. I don't think they missed us at all!
Tina has looked after Max & Mary on two separate occasions and has been wonderful both times.
Tina sends me pictures and updates every day.
The second time Tina looked after my fur babies Mary had just been to the vets with a sore eye and needed to have 4 drops a day in her eye. Tina was so amazing and looked after her so well. I would highly recommend Tina to look after your fur babies. She is so sweet and loving to them.
Tina also looked after my house so well. The house is cleaner when I arrive home than I left it.
Thanks Tina. We LOVE you. X
