About Katie

*Currently have specials for healthcare workers/others working overtime due to Covid-19. Only serving St Lucia/Toowong/places easily accessible from the ferry since I don't have a car.

About Me: My name is Katie and I am currently studying medicine at UQ. In the United States I worked on an ambulance as well as walking dogs in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am an animal lover and have always been around many pets. Living in a small apartment in Brisbane I am not able to have any pets so I would love the opportunity to hang out with yours! I grew up on a small hobby farm with dogs, cats, sheep, and a horse. I have experience pet sitting and walking dogs- large, small, puppies, elderly, special needs, etc. I have owned dogs, cats, sheep, horses, tortoises, rabbits, and fish. I love walking animals and have always done a lot of dog walking. In addition to walking dogs and my horse, I also taught my sheep and cat to walk on leash so we could go on walks.

Services: I can do last minute bookings! Message me to check availability.
