About Chris

Current location Hobart until 26th June. Available for dog walking and pet visits to your home.

I am currently traveling around Australia with my wife Carly (nurse and midwife). I'll be updating my location as I go. Feel free to enquire for housesitting even if I'm not currently in your location. Please let me know your location in your request. Follow my adventures instagram.com/thepawguymelb

First and foremost I love animals of all varieties, shapes and descriptions. I was the proud owner of a beautiful Kelpie named Olly who unfortunately passed away on New Years day 2019, I miss him greatly but he'll always be in my heart.

As I mentioned I'm a huge animal lover and grew up with many pets. I have been working in the pet care industry for over 20 years and I've also worked at a local animal shelter. Experience working with dogs, cats and smaller animals: rabbits, hamsters, ferrets. Have also looked after fish, turtles, chickens and budgies. Not trained to administer medication and will not take pets requiring medication.

For all new bookings meet and greet free of charge.

House sitting: It will be myself and my wife staying. Can feed and walk pets, put bins out, collect mail, water plants (I don't have a green thumb, sorry!!!)

Walks: 1 hour walk for your dog. (Walks on or off leash dependant on your dog.)

Home visits: Up to 1 hour visit to your house, to hang out with your pet. Can walk, feed, play whatever you need.

2 × home visits: Up to 1 hour for the 1st visit and up to 30 minutes for 2nd visit.

Chris was very accomodating of my last minute request. He was friendly and efficient to deal with and went out of his way to make my pups feel welcome and at home. I collect two tired and happy dogs at the end of the day. I have already re-booked Chris and would happily recommend him.
