About Nikki

Hello,

I'm Nikki, I'm 32 and I have worked in the animal industry since I was 18.

I love to keep fit and get out in the outdoors.

I became a mum in 2020 so I have an almost 3 year old boy who is also showing a liking to animals like his mum ☺ he often comes to pet sitting jobs if I can't arrange care for him.

I enjoy meeting new fur babies and loving them like my own.

I'm very comfortable around animals of all sizes.

I'm confident giving medications if required

Currently I'm available for the following:


- home visits once or twice a day. Visits include feeding, changing water, lots of pats and play, changing cat litter. If you need mail brought in or the bins put out I'm happy to do so. I will send a photo update with each visit ☺️

House visits are around 15-20 minutes.

- House stays- I stay at your place so your pets is comfortable in their own environment. House stays include a daily walk

-Boarding at my house- I am going to start offering this service as I no longer have any pets with me. I have a small, secure backyard with a doggy door for 24 hour access. My unit is quite small but if your dog is super chill and won't eat my kids toys I'd be happy to have them here. You will need to provide your pets food and bedding. Boarding includes a daily walk.


I live in Rowville and work part time at Monash University in Clayton.

I have experience volunteering in animal shelters and at animal events. I have been pet sitting for over 8 years now I really enjoy meeting different breeds and their individual characteristics, it’s great!

I have grown up with German Shepard’s and staffy's so I’ve always been comfortable with larger breeds.

I currently don't have any pets of my own as I had to put my elderly dog to sleep recently 😢

* Recurring clients if I don't have a previous service available feel free to message me and check if I'm available to do it ☺️

We have never left our very scared cat, Boo, alone before. We were nervous leaving him for 4 days alone in the house, but Nikki sent us photos and updates every single day. She has a way with animals - he even allowed her to give him belly rubs & head scratchies. She’s left the house exactly as clean as when we left it. Having Nikki look after Boo means we have peace of mind to leave him knowing he will be well looked after. Will definitely book with Nikki again 🥰

We were so happy with Nikki and cannot fault her at all. Our dog was well cared for, given eye drops he required and the house was kept as we left it (actually better to be fair!) We were given updates each day and have already rebooked for our next trip away.
