Hello fellow pet owners! My name is Ashlee and I am a 21 year old, fourth year Veterinary student currently studying my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Adelaide. I live in Gawler to study for my degree but am looking for pet sitting opportunities over University holidays (around St Mary’s, Pasadena, Mitcham etc.). Feel free to check my availability for these periods! I am more than happy to offer discounts for longer stays, my current rate is more so for just single overnight stays.
My Skills and Experience!
I have always loved animals and have been lucky enough to grow up surrounded by all sorts of pets; dogs, cats, guinea pigs, chickens, birds, lizards and fish. In addition to this, I have completed 12 weeks of animal placements so have extensive experience in not just companion animals but livestock and large animals so am willing to take on all creatures big and small (check out some of my pictures)! I have also completed many weeks of work experience in Veterinary Clinics.
If your pet suffers from any medical conditions, I am confident in providing topical, oral or even injectable medications if need be. Furthermore, I have also had extensive experience with shelter dogs suffering with anxiety and behavioural issues so do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any additional care that your pet may need.
Unfortunately in my rental property, I am unable to care for pets of my own, but I spend most weekends with my parents who have many pets. My family pets include; Hugo (Boston Terrier), Bear (Staffy x Mastiff), Jazzy and Levi (Cats), Spike (Bearded Dragon), Burnie (Galah), Katut (Goldfish).
As a future vet, I believe in providing animals with the highest quality of care and consider my pets and all others, as family. I love all animals big and small so you can feel comfortable leaving your pets with someone who will treat them as their own. I offer the following;
Overnight House Sitting
So, if you require a fun, loving and caring sitter to look after your treasured pet, please contact me to arrange a meet and greet!
Ashlee was unbelievably helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending her as a pet sitter. She was kind and reliable and my pets loved her. She sent me messages each day with pictures to show how each one was going. It was such a relief to know all my animals were being so well looked after. Made my holiday so good and I had peace of mind as my animals are very precious to me. I couldn't ask for more.
We used Ashlee to care for our two Labradors when we were away in January and she was absolutely fantastic. One dog is a very timid rescue dog and the other is always looking for attention and Ashlee managed them perfectly. She kept us updated with photos all weekend, managed walking both of them together even though they are a lot to handle, and even tidied up the house! We felt totally confident leaving our fur babies with Ashlee and were able to relax when we were away knowing that they were in good hands. We would highly recommend Ashlee to anyone who is looking for an extremely capable and caring dog sitter.
During my Year 12 studies I was also lucky enough to complete a Certificate III in Animal Care and Husbandry, providing me with additional experience working with companion animals. I have also completed two Pet First Aid courses (2015 and 2017) so you can feel confident that your pet is in safe hands should the unexpected happen. Once my exams are over, I will have completed my Bachelor of Science (Veterinary Bioscience) degree, ready to take on my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine next year. I can also provide a current and valid police clearance/check if required.
