Professional Dog Walker /Registered Nurse .
53, Professional Dog Walker/Registered Nurse
Hi, thank you for looking at my Profile :)
I am a 53 year old female, non-smoker, owner of
St George Dog Walking/All Pets Home Visits business in Sydney. My passion is animal welfare and creating a calm and loving relationship with all the dogs, cats, birds and other fur/finned animals I look after. Their well being is my absolute priority, and I pride myself on excellent communication at all times. After each dog walk/pet home visit I contact the owner to update . I am also a Registered Nurse/ Community Midwife of over 30 years experience, able to administer any medications needed.
Relevant Animal Experience : Over 30 years of caring for dogs/cats/rabbits/rats/mice/fish/lizards/chooks/ both native birds Currawongs from Taronga Zoo and pet birds/ and recent experience with horses, basic feeding and rugging.
I have a First Aid Animal Tafe Certificate. Assisted with Rescues Organisations ( WIRES and Lost Dogs Home )
I have given insulin via injections to cats, tick treatment to dogs. Assessed an anxious arthritic cattle dog for pain management and adjustment of Medi- calm anxiety relief as needed. Similar treatment and assessment of an anxious rescue cat, following their Local Vets Treatment Plan.
I have assisted with a labrador in a recent road accident, organising an Animal Ambulance from the Referral Hospital, and contacting its owners.
I believe with over 30 years experience being a Registered Nurse this definitely assists with Initial Assessment, Rapid Response and Management in Emergency Situations.Also ability to understand and implement medication plans and ongoing treatment by Vets.
With a recent Sharpei, I was in daily contact with its concerned owners in Poland, as they were concerned about its' toileting habits.
Relevant House sitting experience : Through my own Dog Walking Business I have house sat for many clients within Southern Sydney and their pets. In addition to pet care I attend to garbage bins/ watering of garden and prized pots, security checks/ adjustment of blinds to make the house looked "lived in " ,mail and any other requests my clients may ask of me. ( Including restocking the fridge with essentials for their arrival home . )
Also as a Community Midwife I am very adept at finding my way to places via roads/public transport and quite clever at opening stubborn gates, difficult doors with difficult keys and most importantly always remembering that I am a guest in someones home and to treat it with the respect it deserves. ( shoes off, etc )
In short, I aim to have the most Professional and Caring Dog Walking/ All Pets Home Visiting Service in Sydney and now want to use all my accumulated experience into furthering my horizons and pets met, with new opportunities through House Sitting.
I am also required to have Police Checks as part of my employment, which can be provided if required.
(I am also a home owner and mother of 2 teenage boys..)
