About Olivia

Hello! My name is Olivia and I've always had a passion for animals, big or small!

Some facts about me /What sets me apart from other sitters;

Education:

*Bachelor of Zoology majoring in ecology

*Graduate Certificate in Captive Vertebrate Management

* Dog behaviour and training certificate ( currently studying)

* Pet first Aid

Occupation:

Zookeeper at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

Other documents :

*Police Check (2020)

I spend my free time volunteering at the Wildlife Hospital and other animals organisations. My entire life is dedicated to animals and your beloved pet will be throughly looked after under my care.

I am currently studying dog behaviour and training and have experience with various breeds and temperaments of dogs . I have experience with reactive and dogs who pull and halti harnesses etc.

I’ve grown up with cats all my life and if you ask any of my friends that probably would tell you I don’t shut up about them 🙂 I have two lynx point modern Siamese cats: Randall and Yuki and a Sphynx cat named Pharaoh and I have fostered and helped rehome various kittens from 5 weeks to 8 months old.

I have experience administering oral; tablets,liquids,pastes and ventolin inhalers. So if you require this for your animal I am happy to do so for no extra cost

I am confident handling all animals and would give time and attention to every animal that comes into my care. I have owned and worked with snakes, lizards and rats so I am also confident in handling the little creatures. I understand every animal is different so I take time to understand their personality and needs. I have a police check that I am willing to send at your discretion.

I find animals fascinating and would love to meet yours!
