I am an absolute animal lover who has grown up with a large number of animals including dogs, cats, lizards and guinea pigs just to name a few. At home, I have a 13 year old miniature poodle Coco. I have experience volunteering with organisations such as The Animal Welfare League QLD (animal shelter), Silver Lining Pet Rescue (animal shelter) and Wildcare Australia (Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation) and RSPCA (wildlife hospital). I have experience with dogs of all sizes, breeds and personalities; cats including more specialised breeds such as the Devon Rex; reptiles such as bearded dragons, blue tongues and snakes; both tropical and marine fish; chickens and more. I have been pet sitting for three and a half years now and I have loved every minute of it. When I look after your pets, they will be treated as if they were my own. You will receive regular updates on how everything is going and you will always be able to see what we are up to through our Instagram page @cocobellepetcare.
WALKING/RUNNING A typical walk with your dog can be either one on one or if you'd like them to be socialised, we can walk with 1-3 other friendly pups. I will often perform basic walk training with both one on one and in group walks. We will often take the most scenic route around the neighbourhood or if you're happy to do so, we will walk to the nearest dog park for a run. I now also offer 30 and 60 minutes running sessions of a morning and evening if you feel your pup needs a little more exercise. I will cater the run to the energy level and fitness of your pup and will certainly not be out if it is too hot.
HOUSESITTING - Currently booked out until October Housesitting consists of quality time with your pet. I am very much about keeping your pets in their routine, so I will complete everything that is required to keep your cat or dog happy at home. I will happily water your plants, take out your rubbish, bring in the mail and complete a full house clean (including the washing of all used linen) at the end of my stay. When housesitting, I would love to be able to bring Coco with me. She is fine with both dogs and cats. If your pets wouldn’t get along with Coco, that is also fine, she can stay with my grandparents :)
DAYCARE Most days I am out and about with all my dogs so daycare generally won't be undertaken in my home. Your pup will likely be out joining our daily walks and day to day activities. I am also more than happy to stay in the pups home for daycare if you prefer.
Meg was absolutely wonderful. We had to go away for 2 weeks and were so happy knowing that Meg would be there every day to feed and cuddle our cat Maxi, so she could stay in her familiar surroundings. Meg regularly contacted us with reports and photos of our Maxi so we could relax knowing she was safe and looked after.
Will definitely call on Meg again when we have to go away and would highly recommend her.
Meg was friendly, easy going and was able to accomodate popping in to look after my cat on a little bit of late notice :) Thanks again!
