Caring, loving, quiet soul

35, Student & Artist

I absolutely love spending time with animals and have always had a special connection to all kinds of furry friends. I love taking dogs for walks and cuddling cats and am open to caring for all other walks of life. To date, I've looked after horses, cows, calves, sheep, rabbits, many varieties of dogs and cats, chickens and ducks, rats and even a dingo! I love your babies like they are my own. I am also very experienced with rescues (dogs particularly) and understand their differing needs with anxiety and medications.

I have been living in Bangalow for a year, renting a lovely studio on the property of some past sitting clients. I was previously house sitting full time and have been consistently booked during my time here doing local paid sits.

Six months ago, I adopted an elderly mini poodle who is a bit deaf and mostly blind. Due to her care needs, I take her everywhere I possibly can and can only take bookings where I am able to bring her along. She mostly sleeps all day in her bed and is toilet trained to wait for toilet breaks or ask when needed. She is quiet (no barking), very sweet and affectionate. She lived with a cat and another dog over the last decade. Other animals seem to love her and sense that she is old and a bit frail. She is quite timid of their curiosity but never reactive, not at all a grumpy old girl, just shy. She has done very well with all of our sits together so far. Feel free to ask me more about Ruby!

I am studying design part time and online. When I'm not studying, I am making art. Previously, I attended events as a public speaker and workshops facilitator. I was also volunteering as an indigenous youth mentor and a community ambassador for organ donation. (Currently not all possible due to COVID)

I am super clean and tidy, partly due to my immune condition as a result of being a transplant recipient. Health hygiene is of incredibly high priority for me, I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. In my spare time, I love dancing, reading and time in nature. I like to keep active and eat healthy.

I have my own car and open licence. I also love doing a bit of gardening and would be very happy to look after your plants.

I have been house sitting for many years, though only joined this site in the last couple of years. I have been sitting almost full time (on and off) for 5 years. I've lived in the Northern Rivers for the past 6 years and on and off for many beyond.

More 5 star reviews and recommendations from other sites and personal bookings are available on request. I hold a current Working With Children Check in NSW, which is inclusive of a police check. Happy to provide evidence of this.

I look forward to meeting you and your sweet animals!

Recently we went away for a month. A friend suggested we use Aussie House Sitters, instead of placing our three pets in care. What an excellent choice we made. We were impressed with the caliber of applicants.. After ready previous reviews written on the applicants we decided to interview Tanith. We made a good choice, as Tanith came through as very experienced, a good communicator, and worldly. Tanith then did a great job, and we were so glad we chose her. Through out the whole ... MORE
MARTYN (Largs NSW, Feb 2021 - 28 days)
Had a great experience with Tanith. Communication was second to none and was great to see my fur baby go straight in for pets. I was provided great little updates during the week I was away to know my Kitty was relaxed. Tanith was extremely respectful of my home and I wouldn't hesitate to book again in the near future.
TINEKE (Morningside QLD, Jun 2021 - 5 days)
Tanith was an amazing sitter for the duration that I was away. I am thankful for how well she looked after my home and extensive garden and indoor plants. Everything was immaculately clean and tidy on my return. Even my neighbours mentioned she was kind, quiet and conscientious of them. Tanith gave me peace of mind by checking in regularly and sending updates. We had a flexible arrangement for the duration of the sit that suited us both. I highly recommend Tanith as a sitter and will definitely ... MORE

Tanith farm sat for me for a week on my hobby farm, she came prior to the sit to learn all the animal feeds which was so good of her. All the animals are healthy and happy on my return, the house is lovely and clean. Tanith sent me regular updates and photos which was nice! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tanith for other sits!
MICHELLE (Leeville NSW, Apr 2021 - 1 week)
We had Tanith stay with our dog for a 3 - 4 month sit. In that time she looked after our dog our house and other minor issues that occurred without concern by us. She comes highly recommended by us and she formed a very close bond with our dog. Thank you Tanith.
JANE (Fennell Bay NSW, Oct 2020 - 3 -4 months)
Tanith is the Gentlest of Souls who did a fabulous job looking after our little 3 legged one eyed dog plus our home. Daily reports and photos were much appreciated. I would recommend Tanith to anyone in particular long term sits. Tanith is a private person who enjoys company of pets. We returned to a tidy home and very happy little dog. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Tanith as a House & Pet Sitter.
MAREE (West Ballina NSW, Aug 2020 - 6 days)
Oh sweet Romeo! Such a dear little guy. Thank you so much for your kind words and for being so welcoming and making me feel at home in your home. It was a pleasure to look after this gorgeous boy and I would be happy to help in the future if I am able. Stay well and healthy and all the best with ... MORE
I can't recommend Tanith more highly. Our normally stand-offish pup was sleeping with Tanith by night two. It was such a relief knowing that our fur baby was relaxed at home and being looked after. Great communication throughout the stay which helped us to enjoy our time away and coming home to a clean house was a bonus.
CASSY (Algester QLD, Feb 2020 - 4 days)
Tanith was a wonderful sitter for our two fur kids. Great communication, fantastic photos, kept in touch over her short stay. Our home was very clean upon our return, the sheets and towels also been laundered and on the line drying. We were leaving very early in the morning, so Tanith came the night before to our request so we could meet her and the girls also had opportunity to get comfortable with her too. The minute she came through the door the girls were all over her. They always ... MORE
TRACEY (Goonellabah NSW, Nov 2019 - 5 days)
Tanith did a wonderful job looking after our house. It was lovely to come home to a tidy and well looked after home. She handled both of our fur babies very well and was thorough in all of the information she gathered about them both. We would happily use Tanith again.
TONI (Burleigh Waters QLD, Nov 2019 - 4 days)
Thanks Toni! Would be happy to sit for you again when you need. I hope you had a great short holiday and are settled back home ok. Thanks again.
Tanith Was a lovely easy person to deal with from our first contact. She was open and willing to please! She watered our plants during a very hot dry time and looked after our house and our dog ! On our return we found a clean house and a very happy pup! She even took our dog out for a drive to the beach and shops.
ANGELA (Eungella NSW, Oct 2019 - 1 week)
Thanks so much Angela! I really enjoyed my stay & lovely litte Pippy was such a treat to look after. Happy to help again if you ever need in the future! Good luck with the building & renovations.
Tanith was wonderful. Boston loved her and she looked after him very well. The house was neat and tidy on arrival. First class pet and house sitter
GERRY (Mullumbimby NSW, Oct 2019 - 5 days)
Thanks so much Gerry! I am glad you were happy to have me and really, it is so lovely & easy to spend time with Boston, I am grateful!
Thank you Tanith for looking after our boys. Tanith sent us cute little videos of our pets while we were over seas which was very thoughtful. Would recommend Tanith for any house sitting jobs.
SUZANNE (Murwillumbah South NSW, Aug 2019 - 4 weeks)
Thanks so much for your kind words & understanding & flexibility with my movements. I miss Wallace & Bill & Ted! They were such lovely company & I feel very grateful for having stayed in your home. Best wishes with your future travels and Antarctica!
Tanith looked after our house and dogs for 3-4 weeks in May. Tanith was available at short notice to mind our place when our original house sitters had to pull out at the last minute. Tanith was easy to contact and came out to meet up at our house and go over what was required and meet our doggies. There was good communication with us while we were away and we much appreciated Tanith's flexibility when our return date was brought forward and we had to come home early. Our house was clean and ... MORE
RODNEY (Lennox Head NSW, Apr 2019 - 4 weeks)
Thanks so much for letting me sit for you and look after your sweet doggies! It was a lovely escape in Lennox and walks on the beach with the dogs were fun. The house is very modern and homely and I felt so welcomed. It was beautiful to arrive to blooming lilies! It was unfortunate that you ... MORE
