About Kirsten

Hi there! My name is Kirsten, and my world happily revolves around animals! I would love to meet and care for your pet and love it as if it were my own! I have a bachelors degree in animal welfare and have spent the last few years working at a Doggy Daycare centre and the RSPCA, both in New Zealand and Australia. I also hold a pet first aid certificate. I have lots of experience with dogs of all sizes and breeds, and I also have my own dogs. I also have experience with cats and other small animals. I have been pet sitting for a number of years and can provide testimonials from past clients. I am available for:

DOG WALKING: (usually around an hour, which also includes time cuddling, washing and drying your dog down if they got muddy or wet, treat time, and settling them before I leave.

HOME VISITS: includes feeding your pet, exercising them if required, cuddle and play time, changing litter trays, watering plants, taking rubbish out and bringing mail in.

HOUSE SITTING: Keeping your fur baby comfortable and safe in their own home while they're missing you, following your routine and taking care of your home with respect, and will include complimentary walks and park visits for dogs with your permission.

I am happy to cater to all breeds and any specific needs such as reactive dogs. I genuinely love all animals I meet, and I would treat your pet as if it was my own. This means lots of pats, cuddles, and fun activities while it is in my care. I will also keep up with any rules or training you apply at home, for consistency. I send plenty of text and photo updates to owners. I love spending my time with animals and my greatest joy comes from bonding with them. Please get in touch if you have any specific questions and we can happily discuss you and your pets individual needs. I am looking forward to hearing from you and meeting your beautiful pet! Thank you for your trust!

Kirsten was absolutely amazing with my two dogs. She treated our dogs like her own. They absolutely adore her. I will most definitely make use of her services every time we go away. Its the first time I could go away and not worry about my dogs. They are high maintenance with allergies etc and need meds. She did not have a problem and advised me of everything. I can highly recommend her

First time I use a service like this and allowed someone that I don’t know in our home. I was very open with Kristen about this.

She understood my requests and respect them.

Our dogs are looked happy , content after we arrived home and Kristen connected with them so well. I had also bird to take care of , so Kristen was great with my bird. You can definitely see Kristen’s passion for animals and how she enjoys being with them.

Regular communication and updates, photos received from her . Thanks again Kristen
