About Vittoria

Hi and thank you for visiting my Pawshake profile. I have lived happily with the companionship of furry friends all my life. They make me happy and they are my happy pill. No one else loves you the way they do. My best friend is my Silky Terrier Waldo born April'18 and he has brought me so much happiness.

I am an experienced house-sitter and animal sitter. Over the last 10 years have had repeated clients (my friends) ask me to look after and trusted me with their 2 beloved cats (Scoffee & Blanc ... RIP this year) in their home, 2 dogs (Apache the Dalmatian & Romeo the Maltese ... RIP also this year) also in their home, 1 very active and playful Jack Russell (Dolly). There has also been brother Jack Russells (Charlie & Louie). And recently my cousins pup 6 month old, Seamus, for 4 days who I treated like my baby.

Here are a few references to make you feel at ease :-

"Vittoria is a very friendly, outgoing and caring person, who gets on well with people as she does with pets. We have a two year old Jack Russell, Dolly who loves Vittoria to bits. Vittoria is playful, fun but also very careful with Dolly. I have also seen her look after other people’s dogs and she is again very vigilant, playful and responsible with them. In addition Vittoria has looked after my home when I’ve been away and she is a great housekeeper! She is very clean, tidy and meticulous. I highly recommend her to look after and care for pets as well as ensuring your home is as you left it. No hesitation in recommending Vittoria and happy to talk to anyone who needs further information - CheersNancy"

"Vittoria is a fantastic house sitter and pet minder. She has looked after our pets for the past few years and they love her very much, she also takes great personal care of our home.It’s usually cleaner than when we left it, a lovely welcome home present. She comes highly recommended, by us and our spoodle Seamus ! - Rebecca"

"We have three dogs and one cat and often travel for extended periods of time to see our families overseas. On numerous occasions Vittoria has stayed at the house and looked after the animals. We have always come home to a clean and tidy house (often with meals in the freezer cooked by Vittoria) and the animals have always looked fit and happy. We would be very happy to recommend Vittoria for similar house / animal sitting responsibilities - Steve"

I am a very reliable, happy, kind, caring person, with a heart of gold. Having no children makes me all the more loving with pets as they are like my children. I will never hit an animal or harm them.

If you have any further questions, big or small, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm more than happy to put your mind at ease and work around your needs if I can.

I couldn’t be happier with the way Vittoria cared for Tiger and Timmy over the last 10 days. . Her regular photos and messages on their status was really lovely. She also kept my garden alive during the hot weather which was amazing. I would highly recommend Vittoria as reliable, warm and friendly. A true animal lover!

Vittoria was wonderful. She sent daily photos and really cared about Dolores. She has excellent communication skills and she was very happy to meet and make arrangements before my holiday. I highly recommend Vittoria.

Specific Skills

Familiar with dog training techniques

Currently working in a casual job - my hours usually are Mon to Fri 4-8pm and Saturday/Sundays 9-5pm

I will be able to offer my services outside these times and am flexable so if you arent sure, just ask me.

I will guarantee that your pet will not feel lonely while I'm with them. I will cuddle them, love them, play with them and brush their hair too. If it's hot I will give them a sprinkler shower with the hose, if they love that, and accommodate them like my own.

I prefer Small to Medium dogs due not being strong to control the larger dogs, however if you don't require me to walk them, I am happy to include larger dogs in my list. No AGRESSIVE dogs Please :-(

I live in Thornbury so happy to look after pets within 3 kilometres from my home, which include surrounding areas around Coburg, Brunswick, Preston, Fairfield and Northcote.
