About Candice

Background

Hello!

My name is Candice and like many others on this site, I am an animal lover.

I am from a small town in NSW called Gloucester. I have moved to Canberra to work at the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. On our farm in Gloucester we have four kelpies and three cats - all dearly loved. Unfortunately I don’t get to see them as much as I would like to, so I would love to shower your pets with attention.

Interests

I am an active person who loves walking; I live near Black Mountain and Mount Painter which are both great spots for enjoying the outdoors. Of course, any walk is made infinitely better with a four-legged companion and I’d be happy to ensure your fur-family get all the exercise they need. Having grown up with kelpies, I am fully capable of long, active walks and never-ending games of fetch.

I am also a cat lover and capable of giving as many chin-rubs and bac-scratches as your cat demands :)

Skills/experience

I studied animal science at Western Sydney University. During this time I volunteered at a non-profit animal shelter called Save Our Strays (SOS). I have also been a foster carer for the Gunnedah RSPCA branch, fostering two puppies and six kittens.

I

dog sit for friends as needed. And of course, I have grown up tending to my pets’ every need. I understand, and am respectful of, different pet personalities. And I am a flexible, caring person who would be happy to meet and care for your pets.

I work in the APS with flexible hours, however a typical day is 9-5pm. I am available of a morning and after work.

Candice did a fantastic job caring for my cat Leia. Excellent communication and sent me text updates and photos. Leia doesn't like many people but she let Candice pat her which says a lot. Will definitely use Candice again.

Candice was reliable, easy to get in contact with, and kept me up to date with how my cat was doing over the weekend. And the cat loved her! She also watered the plants and fed the fish. Highly recommended (I’ve already booked her again)!
