About Kate

Hi, my name is Kate! I'm a future veterinarian but I have so far only completed one year of my veterinary degree because I've had to take some time off due to health reasons... which isn't the worst, because now I'm dedicating this year of recooperation to looking after as many pets as possible!

Thanks to my studies I have plenty of knowledge regarding animal handling and care, as well as plenty of previous experience pet sitting for several clients and a few months working as a kennelhand in a pet motel over the Christmas holiday period. 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 happy to pet sit for you in your home, take your dogs for walks or do daycare in your home, and I'm also happy to have your dogs at my home provided they are dog friendly as I have my own dog who LOVES playing with other friendly pups! She's a doberman so she's a large breed, but she's a very gentle giant and would rather roll over and submit than fight so we've never had any problems with her and other dogs. Our yard is fully fenced as we also have a smaller dog who is older and not interested in dogs but is a bit of an escape artist, and there is a big grassy area for the dogs to play on and plenty of shade for hot days.

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! :)

Our black lab, Kuma had the best time at Kate's! She stayed at her place for 7 nights and loved it! She had many friends to play with during the day, which was so good for her. Kate sent us regular updates, which made us feel confident and comfortable with the arrangement throughout our holiday. I highly recommend Kate if you're looking for a trustworthy pet sitter!
