About Steph

I am a 30something year old female with currently no pets of my own. I have a flexible schedule and my work is casual so I would love to fill my days by spending quality time with your pets while keeping your home safe.

I love all animals and I have many years experience looking after my own pocket pets (rats, guinea pigs). I have also looked after and pet-sat for rabbits, mice, dogs and cats. I'm happy to discuss caring for other small critters that I haven't mentioned, I'd love to meet new species! See my photos for some of the many animals I've cared for and played with. 

In my spare time I like to make small animal hammocks so if I'm looking after your rodents there's a good chance I'll get creative with their cage and much fun will be had by all. 

I offer house sitting and pet sitting services and am experienced giving oral and topical medications. I can also take small contained pets (eg rodents, NOT dogs or cats) into my own home but all enclosures and equipment would need to be provided. While house sitting I can be there all of the time to care for any of your pet's needs, only leaving for quick errands (eg supermarket) if necessary. I am neat and tidy, organised and can work well under pressure (evidence in last photo). I am definitely not a professional pet groomer but I'd love to give your pets a good brush if they like that too. I will also help with watering plants, collecting mail, putting out bins etc as required.

I am currently only able to care for older or slower dogs as I am unable to take active dogs on long fast daily walks. I can throw balls in your backyard all day though if that's what your pooch loves! And I would love to take your dog on a slower stroll around the block if that's the kind of pace that also suits them.

My only mode of transport is bus/train/tram. I live in Sunshine but I am happy to travel further afield to housesit provided public transport is nearby. This includes regional areas but an additional charge may apply. Home visits are only available for nearby houses or places very easily accessible by public transport.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for further clarification. I look forward to meeting with you and your family!

Steph looked after our energetic terrier, Wilbur, for 4 days and was great! Steph worked with our schedule, sent regular updates, kept the house in order and most importantly took excellent care of Wilbur. Highly recommend!

Steph was amazing. She gave us constant updates throughout her time sitting for us. We felt the animals actually seemed to miss her when she left.
