I have recently moved to Melbourne from Wellington leaving my job at Weta Workshop as a game developer, and am now working as a freelance designer, renewable energy sales consultant and professional singer.
I am a friendly, outgoing, caring person who lovesss the outdoors, exercise, music, animals, travelling, the arts and more. I previously worked at SPCA a few years ago in the dog section caring for shelter dogs, treating them, walking them and cleaning their pens. I also had a Golden Retriever for 12 years who I loved dearly who passed away fairly recently and I definitely miss the companionship animals give on the day to day just by being present. Since then I have looked after both my uncle's and best friend's dogs, (a labradoodle and pug) taking them on walks and day trips.
I love all sorts of animals, always have, and am a very active person who loves to get outside, so what better way to do that than with animals! I'm pretty flexible with my hours so am happy to discuss options.
While you are away, for house sitting option any walks needed must be booked separately. This option includes feeding, company and any medication administration needed. I can also check your mail, water plants, open and shut curtains and turn on lights as required for house sitting or visits.
Unfortunately, My place does not allow animals so I cannot have animals in here, therefore day trips and house sitting at your home is ideal for me. I have felt I really would like to look after animals or others as part of my weekly tasks as it makes me feel good and stress-free, and if it helps others out and the animals enjoy the company and exercise then I am all for that. Hope to meet you soon!
We were very appreciative of Alex's reliability, manner and organisation in calling twice daily to feed our elderly cat over the Easter holiday period.
As a first time user of Pawshake - we would happily use Pawshake again, and Alex (Takapuna) again when we need to go away.

Alex was great. We got updates most days with how they were doing. She is easy to deal with and managed the two dogs well. Thanks!
