About Emma

Hello! My name is Emma and I've always been an avid animal lover. Whilst I'm certainly a cat person, I love all different creatures, both big and small, and am aiming to become a zookeeper! I am looking to gain some experience and income within the animal industry to be more equiped for the future.

At the moment, I am still perusing my studies, having received my Certificate II in Animal Studies at TAFE in 2023 and am applying for Certificate III in Captive Animals. I am also a current volunteer at Lonsdale RSPCA and foster kittens from the same RSPCA whenever I can.

In regard to prior experience in animal care, I am in charge of feeding and medicating the cats of my household; As well as the dogs when I am left to look after the house. I also have experience with all kinds of animal behaviour and needs due to previous volunteer work (Dog Training Club in my hometown, volunteering in Cat Care & Pocket Pets at RSPCA)

The services I wish to offer are dog walking, home visits (Once or twice a day) and house sitting. I am also able to provide any emergency transport and any administration of oral medication.

My dog walks will depend on a dog’s age/physical well-being (For example, I would take an elder dog with joint pain on a 15 minute walk) as well as consulting with you about how long the walks typically are. Minkarra Park is my preferred spot for dog walks, however I am flexible in where I can go if you have a preferred location to take your pets.

In regard to home visits, my limit would be 1-2 nights (2 being the only max and if completely needed) as it is what I feel most confident and comfortable doing. I am more than happy to remain at you residence the entire duration of you are concerned about security or your pets' comfort. I do ask for any rules or expectations for me either messaged to me or on a list in your residence whilst I’m there.

I will also require your contact information in case I need to contact you regarding your pets or any other concerns. If you have plants you would like for me to water, I can also incorporate that into my care; As well as bringing in any mail you may receive.

With all my services, I can ensure a friendly and safe care for your pets, as well as patience and understanding of different animals needs and temperament.

My schedule is rather flexible and I am available the vast majority of the time; The only exception being Wednesday nights (7.45) Other than that, I’m fairly available any day at any time, however if I did ever have anything planned for the day, that would of course be discussed to see what works best with you and I.

If I sound like a good fit for what you need, please feel free to get in touch with me!
