Hi, my name is Kate! I've been petsitting full time for just over 2 years now and in that time I have looked after and fallen in love with so many gorgeous pets!
Thanks to a year's worth of veterinary studies (which I had to leave due to health reasons), I have plenty of knowledge regarding animal handling and care, as well as plenty of previous experience pet sitting for many different clients and from working as a kennel hand in a pet motel. I am confident with most animal species and have experience handling birds (including large parrots), rodents (rats, mice, guinea pigs), horses, dogs, cats and also livestock. I am happy to care for any animal regardless of size, breed, species or age... I don't think I've ever met an animal I haven't gotten along with before!
I'm also currently part-way through my NDTF dog training course, so I have a very keen understanding of animal behaviour with the goal of going into the dog training industry at some stage in the future.
I'm happy to pet sit for you in your home, have your dogs board at my home, take your dogs for walks or do daycare in my home with my dogs. Our yard is fully fenced with fences that are roughly 2m high all around. We have heaps of space and a big couch for cuddles too! My dogs are very friendly and are used to having doggy guests stay in our home.
I also love photography and can get some beautiful complimentary shots of your pets for you while you're away. And of course I'll always send plenty of photo updates during my stay so that you never have to worry about your fur babies while you're away.
I hope I can meet you and your beautiful animals soon! :)
It was my first time leaving my dog, Greg (an energetic 1 year old staffy x), with a sitter. Kate had us over for a meet and greet to see her place and answered all my nervous new dog owner questions. She sent me pictures of Greg during the day, which was really reassuring and Greg made some great friends. She's even taken him out to the park (beyond what was expected!) and takes good care to make sure the dogs get some down time (Greg loved the couch). Her house is in a terrific area for dog walks too! Could not recommend Kate and her services more, Greg is loving going back regularly :)
Thank you Kate! It was the first time leaving our furbaby for more than a night. We felt comfortable leaving him with Kate and loved the daily photo updates. We would definitely use Kate again
