About Irene

Hello, I'm Irene. 

I'm a post grad student at USyd. I wanted to try Pawshake because I absolutely love animals and now that my semester has ended and I have plenty of spare time.

Growing up I've always been around dogs and cats. I had a dachshund named Ruby when I was younger, she often took me on walks. I spent most of my college years at my friend's place, he had 5 cats and one dog and I would often go over to either play with them or sometimes walk his dog. I've also had a few interactions with a rescue pup that another friend had fostered. Having Tofu slowly warm up to me and trust me was such a rewarding experience, he was a gem to play with.

Since I've been in Sydney, I've helped a friend pet sit and walk a few cats and dogs. I'm familiar with walking etiquette, feeding requirements and can give oral medication. I can do home visits, both quick check ins for feeding and keeping your pet company for several hours based on your requirement. Happy to help with quick basic tasks like watering plants as well. I'm flexible with timings and can work out a schedule with you.

Irene is phenomenal, conscientious and proactive. She is super flexible, considerate and just seems like a genuinely nice person. Would absolutely ask her to sit again, we came home to two happy cats; do your pets a favour by asking Irene to keep them company!

I've pet sat for friends and family several times, both cats and dogs. We had a loving little Dachshund at home too, when I was growing up. I've been helping one of my friends with her dog walking responsibilities here and thought I'd try the app out for myself!
