About Michael

Hi there, I am a 30 year old engineer from South Africa. I moved to New Zealand on my own in 2019 and loving the incredible quality of life it has to offer.

Cats are awesome and amusing but I am especially fond of dogs. I will take care of them like they are my own. I find it very therapeutic to be around animals and even more so now as settling into a new country has been rather stressful.

I grew up with a Labrador, Jack Russell and Husky. The Lab and Jack lived long and happy lives in our family and passed on gracefully. Unfortunately we had to give away our Husky when we moved to a smaller house as she needed more space for her well-being. Over the years I developed my animal care experience by taking care of dogs for family and friends.

Due to my current living situation I can't have pets of my own which is why I am using Pawshake. I have been a member since 2019 and have a succesful track record with dogs and cats. I am currently only available for overnight stays. My house-sit services include feeding, walks (up to an hour a day), playing and any other personal requests (administering medication, bathing, general house-keeping etc.). On weekdays I work full time so you can expect me to be at your home between 4:30pm and 8am, otherwise weekends I will be home throughout most of the day.

I look forward to meeting and taking care of your furry friends and I have no doubt that they will get as much joy from our encounters as I do from them. Please feel free to contact me at any time.

Cheers!

We absolutely recommend Michael!

Our pets were super happy and the house was immaculate.

Look forward to having you stay again.

Michael was absolutely amazing! He took such great care of our dogs while away. Was always happy to give us an update on how things were going, took the dogs for walks and just in general took very great care of them. We came home to 1 happy dog & puppy. Thanks Michael for looking after them so we didn't have to worry while we were away!
