My name's Roxy and I've been regularly house sitting on and off for the past 10 years or so. As a vet nurse, this is normally to make some extra money in my downtime, or to save on rent. This is most important now as we’ve brought our own place, but can’t move in until the end of the year.
I was recently living in London in 2018/2019 and was also regularly pet sitting/housesitting over there. I’m still working as a vet nurse in Remuera, although I am currently off work for the next few months so will have plenty of face to face time with your pets.
I have probably 15+ years experience working with animals, mostly as a vet nurse, which is handy for animals who need medication dispensed etc. I absolutely love animals!! I’m a energetic, honest, reliable fun 30 year old. I love being outside so plenty of walks would be had. My partner, Cam, is the same age and works full time as a Structural Engineer in Auckland. We are both super tidy and respectful of your personal space and belongings. He will usually stay with me and shares the same love for animals so normally adds to the experience for your pet - however we are flexible with everyones preferences if you'd rather just me stay.
You can expect your animals to recieve the full treatment! Obviously feeding, exercise and lots of love are a given! But they will also recieve regular grooming and medications as required. I always tweak my services based on the owners preference but generally I would offer at least one hours exercise outdoors either once or twice a day and constant cuddles and playtime throughout the day. You can have as many photo or text updates as you prefer.
As far as the house is concerned - I will always clean up after your pet and normally leave the house in the same or better state than when I arrived. You can expect your rubbish, mail, plants or any other specific obligations to be taken care of whilst you are away.
Thanks for reading - do get in touch to get to know us better!
Our first time using Pawshake. Roxy was excellent. She had to deal with a slightly unusual situation, but did so really well. Excellent communication. We will look to rebook Roxy if wanting to go away again.
Such a great pet sitter! Received a video every day! Would recommend!! 😸
As a Vet Nurse I have plenty of medical experience and am familiar with animal emergencies. Dispensing both oral and injectable medication is no problem. I'm responsible and have house sat for a long time so have no trouble keeping your home tidy and presentable. References and criminal convictions check available on request.
