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;

I have a Bachelor of Zoology degree with an entire years worth of study entirely on dog behaviour and function. I have also completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Captive Vertebrate Management and currently work as a Zookeeper at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. 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 currently live in a ground floor apartment in chevron island so your pets are safe from external factors here. There is a shared grassed area where your dog will be able to relive himself . There are some beautiful walks around the area that your dog would love. I am able to walk your dog to the park or drive him/her to an off leash area for no extra cost if that’s something you’d like me to do(time permitting).

I know I’ve spoken a lot about dogs ( love them) but cats have my heart as I find their curious and tentative nature endearing and I really do enjoy winning them over whilst their owner is away. 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 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!

Olivia was amazing in every way, from the first point of contact to after she walked my dog she was conscientious in every way. Yeti had an awesome walk with Olivia, and came home tired. I definitely plan on calling on Olivia again very soon! She even gave me some advice on the resident Curlew who has taken up home in my driveway.
