About Sammie

About Me: I have recently completed my Bachelors of Science (Animal Behaviour) here in Adelaide after relocating from Brisbane to study. Unfortunately I’m unable to have any pets as I rent and have moved frequently throughout my time here, and so Pawshake has been the best alternative to owning my own fluff ball that I could have possibly imagined! I’m a self-proclaimed book nerd, love the outdoors and dabble in baking and cooking where I can. I’m enthusiastic and energetic and love providing care wherever I can! :)

Motivation: I love animals from all walks of life, and studying them through formal education only sparks my interest more! As I'm only renting, I haven't been able to have a dog in my life my last couple of years and am hoping to meet some beautiful pups and dogs through dogsitting/caring (as well as foster any other amazing animals that need some love and attention when you aren't available!)

Services: I live in a lovely residential area that has parks amongst some of the back streets. I'm more than happy to take dogs to Brighton Beach on nice days if you allow for it and they interact well with other animals (similarly with dog parks). Otherwise I'm happy to go on long walks and entertain them in whatever other ways they enjoy. Although I don't have past experience with 'pet sitting', I have had a vast array of pets (fish, rodents, dogs, cats, birds, bunnies) and would like to think my passion and enthusiasm for animals and their welfare really shines through where it counts.

I am unable to host pets overnight at my residence as I’m only renting and is not an acceptable option in our lease, however would be more than happy to house-sit overnight or for longer durations if need be.

Please feel free to contact me with any queries :)

N/B: sorry if my fees seem high, I have selected them to reflect Pawshake’s service fee of 19%- as this is currently a source of income while I study, I think it’s a fair reflection of the hours and services I strive to provide :)

Sammie and Hamish house sit for us for two weeks looking after two cats. We are really pleased with them as they kept us posted with pictures and videos everyday, and I was very happy knowing the cats are in good company. They also kept the house tidy and left the place spotless. Would absolutely use them again if available in future.

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English
< 1 years of experience

I've volunteered on a number of occassions overseas with wildlife and wildlife care. In the past I have owned a variety of pets in my life ranging from fish to birds to rodents and small mammals, as well as cats and dogs. Since moving to Adelaide from QLD I haven't been able to own a dog as I'm a student and renting! I'm studying a Bachelor of Science (Animal Behaviour) and have a passion for all animals. Please allow me to share my love with your furry friends :)
