About Jo

Hi, I'm

Jo, and I'd love to help you with providing the best possible care for your pets.

I'm a qualified veterinary nurse and experienced animal handler with over 15 years experience caring for a variety of domestic pets, including birds, reptiles and small animals such as mice, rats and chinchillas.

I'm based in The Gardens near Manukau, on a large semi-rural section with a fenced backyard.

After working in one of NZ's leading dog daycares for 6 years, I've gone back to university and am now able to offer pet care services again on a casual basis. Pets are cared for in my home as if they are part of my own furry family.

I have experience with all sizes and most breeds of dog and am confident with energetic dogs or those with extra health or behavioural needs. I am able to offer basic obedience dog training (as well as a few tricks!). Walks can be on-leash, or off-leash at our favourite park with ponds to swim in. But it's not all about the dogs - I have 2 cats myself, as well as my own dog. Dogs staying in my home must be dog-friendly and well-mannered when interacting with other dogs. I am able to keep cats and small animals boarding in my home separate from my own pets if required.

Dog Boarding
Britt, 2021-01-20

Jo is a great pet sitter and has looked after my dogs on multiple occasions without issue. One of my dogs has numerous health issues and Jo confidently manages his medication as well. I would recommend Jo for anyone looking for a pet sitter, she will take care of your fluffy family members as if they were her own 😊

We were so pleased to find Jo. Her care for and understanding her own and our fur baby were apparent from the initial meeting. That she works in a veterinary practice gave us confidence, her communication was great and we picked up a very happy dog at the end of his stay. Will definitely use again and would recommend.
