About Ben

I grew up in a family that has always had animals of one type or another and have raised from dogs all the way down to mice. I am currently studying to be a Doctor at UWA and have been a nurse for several years. I came across pet sitting and found the perfect way to make a living for myself whilst surrounded by my favourite thing: animals. I have volunteered at the RSPCA in the past and am very familiar with medications with my health background.

3 out of 4 of my animals are rescued from RSPCA, I have 2 dogs and 2 cats. We adopted them because we really believe that all animals deserve a loving home and a second chance. However my cats are HIV positive and one of my dogs is very protective of us, which is why I can not do Boarding at my house.

I am ideal for anyone looking for Pet/House sitting, House visits or dog walking. I spend most of my time either at Uni or at home studying, which means I can offer your pet plenty of attention when caring for them.

The services I offer are House/Pet sitting, dog walking and house visits. For House/Pet sitting I better suited to short periods, my wife looks after our fur babies while I am away. But if I am sitting I will offer dog walking for free. For dog walking alone I usually aim for 30mins, but this could be longer depending on the exercise requirement of your puppy. House visits are generally 30mins.

Ben is very consistent, caring, reliable with my animals. The feedback I get from other people is that the animals follow Ben around in the house like he is the Pied Piper.

I’m very happy with Ben’s service and care for my animals
