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! :)
Kate stayed at our house for 6 days with our 2-year-old Border Collie cross. He is very shy and can take some time to warm up to people. Kate was very understanding, accommodating and patient with him, giving him treats and reassurance the whole time. By the third day he was happily sitting on the couch and doing tricks with her which is a big deal for him. We really appreciated all the updates she sent, including photos and the house was very clean when we returned home. We would definitely have Kate look after Buddy again.
Thank you so much Kate for taking such amazing care of our girl 😊. I really appreciated all the message updates. It definitely put my heart at ease knowing she was happy, and being care for by someone as experienced as you Kate. Will definitely call on you again when we go away. Thanks again Kate xx
