About Maria

My name is Maria and I'm a marine biologist and true animal lover from Germany! I'm now doing my PhD here in Perth which means that I'm not a backpacker but will stay here for a long time! This enables me to develop a close relationship to your pets and take care of them on a regular basis if desired. I've had pets myself throughout my whole life and grew up with rabbits, guinea pigs, fish & cats.

I worked on a farm sanctuary as a volunteer and just loved it! While I never had the chance to have my own dog (and that's all I've ever wanted, ask my parents :) ) I worked as a dog walker during my studies in Germany.

I truly enjoyed taking care of them and taking them for long walks! I am very active (cycle to work every day) which means that I am very happy to also take care of dogs which need longer walks. The dog walking turned out to be the perfect compromise for me between owning a dog myself and also being able to have enough time for it. That's why I now also offer dog & cat caring services here in Perth.

I offer dog (& cat, if desired) walking & pet feeding at your house in (East) Victoria Park area and surroundings.

During weekdays, I am available in the early mornings (for feeding and shorter walks only) and in the evenings (for feeding and longer walks).

Please don't contact me if you need someone during the day on weekdays since I work full time. I'm flexible on the weekend. I don't smoke and am very reliable & punctual!

Maria was really easy to work with and prompt in her communication. She took great care of my two cats. Thoroughly recommended.

Maria paid special attention to my dogs cues and asked plenty of questions to make sure she walked them the same as I do.

she came and took them with no fuss and always communicated well about times etc.

Maira has been a pleasure to deal with!
