Animal Lover, Treat your home like my own
39, National Manager - Finance
I'm currently booked solid until the 18th of October 2019, but if you're super organised and looking for a long term sit post this please feel free to get in touch.
Highly experienced and professional housesitter,
Hi, I'm Alicia, I am a 39 year old finance professional, raised in Melbourne who is housesitting for the duration of 2018 and into 2019. Doing a great job with your pets and your home is important to me as its how I get referrals for further house sits. Once confirmed I will never (and have never) cancelled a sit.
I love animals and have previously owned dogs (various Labrador X's) including 2 rescue dogs, tropical fish and have shared houses with lizards, cats and a variety of birds (chickens, canaries, love birds and a cockatiel). I also have experience looking after marine fish, rabbits and guinea pigs. I do draw the line at snakes and spiders though (sorry I'm not a fan).
I have experience with administering numerous medications to animals, including creams, injections and tablets. I've attended dog training with all of my previous dogs and am happy to help out if your pets have minor behavioural issues. Happy for animals to sleep either inside with me or outside as required by you.
I will live in and keep your home as I would my own, I prefer to always meet you and your pets in person prior to a sit and will ask you lots of questions to ensure your pets (garden and home) are looked after, not only to my high standards, but more importantly to yours. I will seek to understand your expectations on updates and contact whilst you are away, any health issues your pets may have had or do have and anything I need to know about your home.
I work full time, however, I am able to take your pets for up to twice daily walks with ease. I have the ability to work from home generally around once or twice a week, however if you need someone to be at home with your pet all day every day, then, unfortunately I am not the right sitter for you. I will give your pets lots of love and attention before and after work though!
I have previously used housesitters to care for my dog and so understand the potential nervousness you can feel when leaving your home and pets in the hands of a stranger. I have a current police check and references.
I would love to be considered for your next housesit and look forward to speaking with you.
