About Marnie

Hi! I'm Marnie, a hospitality professional in a past life, I recently took the plunge and walked away from the field to pursue my pet sitting full time. I have been doing house visits and dog walks casually since 2019 but it is now my sole focus and I love it!

A few years ago I adopted the most handsome boy named Joey. He is an FIV kitty, but doesn't let that get in the way of him living his best life. He's still getting used to living in a house and putting up with my constant attempt for cuddles! Joey and I have since welcomed some new family members, my partner Dave and his gorgeous Boxer/Staffy cross, Bonnie. While she doesn't have the best common sense, she's beautiful and the most loyal girl around. She is very eager to be close to her new brother, though Joey isn't as keen.

I love all animals great and small, and would love to help out my neighbours where needed. I'm located in Essendon but am willing to travel around the north/western suburbs.

I previously volunteered at the RSPCA once a fortnight in the kennels and loved giving back to the beautiful pups that have been having a rough time, it's so rewarding! Through this role I've gained experience with dogs of all shapes and sizes and love them all!
I've also been a cat owner since I was a kid, so would love playing with (and hopefully winning over) your kitties as well!

I offer fun filled dog walks and caring home visits, for anyone and everyone, whether you're going away on holiday, or just have to go back to the office. 

My dog walks will usually last around 45 minutes, although if your dog has specific needs, such as off leash park time or just a short bit of exercise, I’m happy to do as requested.

My home visit rate includes a check in for around half an hour, and am happy to feed, clean litter or the backyard, and play with your pet. I’m also happy to collect mail, water plants or anything else you may need done around the house.

All of my services include daily photos and updates through whichever platform suits you, I love sharing how much fun we’re having together! I will show your pet as much love as I show my own! I'm happy to take on specific tasks or follow whatever instructions you leave, I want your pets to get the most out of my visits!

Feel free to throw me a message if it sounds like I suit your needs, I'd love to be able to help you out!

Our Dog (Archie) had a great walk with Marnie. She's a great communicator and amazing with pets. We will definitely use her again.
