Hey there furry friends and owners! I'm Less, I'm 20 years old and an aspiring Veterinarian - I live in Wantirna South with an average/medium sized yard with my parents and sister (24 years of age) and our family dog and cat.
As a science student majoring in animal health and disease, alongside my work experience at both Knox Veterinary Clinic and Pets Haven Animal Shelter, and my 3+ years of petsitting experience, I have both the knowledge and love to ensure your pets have a safe and happy stay, with every pet that enters our home being treated with as much care as we treat our own.
Please do not hesitate to contact me any questions that have not been answered within my profile. I look forward to meeting you and your pets :)
Olaf is a young Border Collie (3y/o) who is a sweet and timid boy and is largely ball oriented. He's very friendly and is happy to share his toys (of which, he has plenty), he tends to prefer fetch with people over puppy play, but can be persuaded with a game of tug-of-war.
Poncho is our ginger kitty (2y/o) who is very much used to our furry additions. He likes to keep to himself, but warms up quickly to a select few pooches for a cuddle and play.
He can be kept seperate from your pets for short stays if they don’t cope well with cats, at no expense to your own pets enjoyment and comfort of course! Both boys are desexed and up to date with their vet work and vaccines.
I'm a friendly and reliable animal lover and would love nothing more than to just hang out with your pets or give them some exercise, no matter what type! I promise to treat your fur babies as one of my own, they are guaranteed to receive plenty of attention and love - I send frequent updates and pictures of all the good fun we get up to, so you can feel at ease with their care and being apart from them.
A TYPICAL DAY
Dog walking: I am flexible with time and lengths of the walks, and will follow along with the timings discussed when contacted. My average walk typically varies from 30mins-1hour based on what the owner likes and what suits the specific pet.
My number one consideration is your pups safety, so please know that on hot days or if I feel your dog is struggling, walk times will be adjusted accoringly. I am completely transparent and will communicate this through to you when doing so :)
I walk many dogs in the middle of the day when their owner is at work, I am trustworthy and interested only in your pups happiness :)
Doggy Day Care: I will typically only take on day care for days when I will be able to provide your dog with my utmost attention, ensuring that your dog will recieve plenty of cuddles, exercise in the form of both walks (1-2) and play, as well as social stimulation through playing with my own dogs. Timing of day care again is owner specific, I am flexible with time and happy to stick to what suits you, the owner, the most.
House sitting/Home boarding: In order to reduce any stress on your pup I will follow as closely as possible to their known daily routines. House sitting/Home boarding will ensure that I wake up at times that your pup is used to and stick to their usual feeding schedule, aside from this they will be treated like my own pup, with walks (1 - 2 per day), play time in the local dog parks and backyard, and endless snuggles. Dogs are welcome inside at all times and have as much freedom as our own. Please do let us know if you don't allow your dog up on the couches ususally, so we can make sure they dont leave with any bad habbits!
Bringing in mail and taking out the bins on rubbish days are included in house sitting, your house will be left in the exact same condition as when I arrived, including the house being wiped down and vaccummed if needed! Any additonal household tasks are happily completed, please do not hesitate to ask :)
Home visits: the nature of home visits varies depending on what each owner is looking for! Usually providing food at the times you wish, checking water and general health of your animals, and ensuring they have some cuddles and stimulation before leaving. Walks can also be included within this, just let me know!
Basic household tasks such as taking your bins to the curb and bringing in the mail will also be done :)
** I am available to look after a variety of different pet types from cats/dogs to more exotic :)
