About Isabella

I'm 26 and have completed a certificate 3 in companion Animal studies where I focused on Dogs and other companion animals. I have now sat and walked dogs of all sizes all over Melbourne and have experience working in doggy daycares. I hope to one day have my own pet sitting or dog training business! I'm currently dog sitting and walking full time so will spend the whole day with your pet!

If dog sitting in your home I will be available the entire time and will walk your pet at least 2 times a day. If I'm just visiting, I'm happy to visit as many times as needed! Other than walks and feedings, I will spend time playing with your pet and if you approve, I can take them out and around with me (running errands, cafes etc). I don't like to leave my pet home alone and will entertain and occupy her as much as possible, she comes with me everywhere and absolutely loves it. I would love to treat your pet to the same! I like to head to different parks and nature walks so depending on the dog a walk can go for half an hour or I can take them for an hour or so.

I don't offer to board overnight but can have your pet for the day. I live on parklands so I have a medium-sized backyard that has a gate that opens directly onto a park so there's plenty of room to run around!

I currently sit and walk dogs for a few people in the neighborhood and often head down to the Alf Pearce reserve dog park. Growing up I had many pets including guinea pigs and rabbits so I'm happy to look after those too!

I have worked with dog groomers, with seeing-eye dogs and in a dog daycare facility where I learned to handle dogs of all sizes, I was surrounded by at least 30 dogs at a time and I loved every second!! I also volunteer every year at the Dog Lovers Show in Melbourne where I assist in different areas of the event, I have volunteered in shelters across Melbourne and Fiji.

I'm that friend that says hi to your dog before you :)

Isabella was brilliant, this was the first time utilising a pet sitting company and we were a little apprehensive.

Isabella made us feel confident in leaving our pets in her care. Our dog has quite a lot of anxiety which makes him scared of people but we were impressed that Isabella was even able to walk him! Thank you!
