Hi there, I'm Julie, a 44 year old female living in Sydney.
I've been house-sitting for over 6 years and have gained quite a few regular assignments. I've owned and looked after dogs, cats, chickens, reptiles and fish. I have also looked after lawns, plants, mail and even some light administrative work.
Minding homes and pets has been a great way for me to spend time with animals and to have the adventure of exploring new environments. I don't work long hours and am currently studying so I tend to spend a fair bit of time at home.
When it comes to older animals or those with medical conditions, I maintain a steady watch over them to monitor any change in behaviour and health status. I'm experienced with administering pill and liquid medication and catering to special needs (including behavioura). In addition, I have looked after lots of rescues and anxious pets, making them feel safe and earning their trust is one of my specialties.
About me personally... I've worked for the same government organisation in Sydney for over 17 years, I'm a qualified nutritionist (not currently practicing) and right now I'm studying to get my Private Pilot's Licence!
As someone who is honest, respectful and great with animals, I hope to assist you with a worry-free time away while I take care of your precious ones and your home.
