Pet Lover & Experienced Sitter
56, Business Owner - Online Retail
Hi, an experienced full-time house sitter and caring pet lover with excellent references, I am honoured to have repeat sits as owners comment that their pets are happy and relaxed when they return. As I work from home on my laptop, I can be there to give them all the love, cuddles and attention they need and give you peace of mind knowing someone is on hand for the care and security of your property.
As a teacher, I had mice and freshwater fish in the classroom and grew up with cats, kittens, freshwater fish, a sulphur crested cockatoo, budgies, finches, bantam hens, chickens and a house bunny rabbit as pets. As a house and pet sitter, I have cared for domestic short hair, domestic long hair and special breed cats, including Balinese, Bengal, Blue Burmese, Burmese, Calico, Himalayan, Ragdoll x Burmese, Russian Blue, Siamese and Tonkinese; low to medium energy dogs including Alsation, Australian Kelpie, Australian Silky Terrier x Maltese, Bichon Frise, Bichon Frise x Poodle, Border Collie, Cattle Dog, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Cavoodle, Chihuahua, Cobber, Cocker Spaniel, Corgi, German Shepard, Jack Russell, Jug (Jack Russell x Pug), Kelpie, Labrador, Maltese x Pomeranian, Maltese x Poodle, Mini Foxy, Mixed Breed, Fox Terrier, Labradoodle, Pomeranian, Pugalier (Pug x Cavalier), Schnauzer, Schnoodle, Spoodle, Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Border Collie, Sydney Silky Terrier x Maltese, Terrier and whippet; budgies, chickens, ducks, geese, cockatiels and Lop, Mini Lop and Mini Rex rabbits.
I am comfortable administering medication as I have taken care of an older dog that needed tablets for arthritis, and both cats and a mini Rex rabbit who needed daily tablets. I understand some pets need special care during thunder storms and fireworks and am happy to sit with them and reassure them. If your pet is used to sleeping in the room with you, this is fine too.
Knowing how much pets are missed, I am happy to email, Skype or WhatsApp you regular pics and anecdotes of your pet to keep in touch and see how they are doing.
I have my own transport and am a responsible, single, quiet, clean and tidy non-smoker who is reliable and trustworthy.
I also take care of homes with no pets in residence. Having someone on hand to bring in the mail, sign for deliveries, put the bins out and in, turn the lights on at night and having a vehicle coming and going all increase the security of your home while you are away. I can notify you if anything occurs such as leaks or fallen branches in storms, pool pumps malfunctioning or Development Application (DA) notices appearing just after you have left on a long holiday.
Having owned my own investment unit in a managed complex, I understand what it is like to leave your property in the care of others and will respect your privacy and requests.
Growing up in a family of keen gardeners, I am confident and happy tending a garden and maintaining a pool.
With experience with cleaners, couriers, electricians, gardeners, plumbers, pool cleaners and vets, I am able to handle any needs and I have a 'can do' attitude if anything should arise.
I have excellent Reviews from home owners from past and regular house sits and am happy to use the Aussie House Sitters' House Sitting Agreement. I have a National Police Check Certificate for your added peace of mind.
I will take care of your property and pets as if they were my own and ensure you return to a clean and tidy home and happy, relaxed pets.
If it is easier, I am happy to chat with you by phone or WhatsApp or meet with you on Skype.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
