About Sarah

Hi! My name is Sarah, I'm 20 years old and live in the Auckland area. I'm originally from Scotland, but moved to Auckland years ago and have no plans to leave! I am currently a student but work casually when possible.

I also do this side job because I love all animals, and being around them makes me very happy!

I've always grown up living with animals, espeically cats, and at the moment I've got two cats named Sox (age 10) and Boots (age 14)

but no unfortunately no dogs, so this both earns me a little extra money and fuels my love of animals and allows me to look after some puppies!

I'm an experienced pet and house sitter, as well as dog walker (sometimes walking 7 dogs at a time!), subsequently I'm very familar with pets and their care

and am able to

ensure their safety during, make sure they're properly fed throughout the day, and clean up after them. I'm also experienced with administering medicine to some of the older dogs and cats I've looked after.

Dog Walking

When walking dogs I love to take them to some of Auckland's dogfriendly beaches and forrest walks so they get to experience the outdoors and have a run around. Walks can range from anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours, with your choice of forest, beach or (dry) coastline walk with the extra option for some socialising with other dogs if you like. Your dog will remain on leash, with some off leash fenced areas where they can run around.

Pet Boarding

I also offer pet boarding during the day and overnight. During the day I am a student so am sometimes away from home for 3 hours, but during this time my mother will be home and is more than happy to look after your pet. I will be with them the rest of the day to feed them, play with them and take them for walks to the local dog park.

For overnight stays your dog will either be able to stay alone in the guest bedroom, which has food, water, a bed to sleep on if they like, and space to play or my bed room, which is the same but means I can look out for them during the night should they get restless. The attached photo is my bedroom, the guest bedroom is the same but without the wardrobe.

When boarding your pet will also have full access to our fully fenced garden, which has plenty of space to run and play along with a supervised dog-friendly pool and a sun shade for those hot summer days. I've attached an image from google so you can get an idea of what our garden looks like, since it's on an incline its quite hard to take a photo and capture it all.

My schedule is pretty flexible as long as given a few days notice, but I can also accommodate the occasional last minute requests. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have! I can't wait to meet your and your pets!

Sarah took care of our energetic 6 month old GSP puppy and elderly cat while we went on holiday for a week and did a great job of looking after them. Everyone was happy and relaxed when we got back and the house was tidy. Definitely recommend!

Sarah was just what our animals needed. She is kind, and totally charmed over our big cat Alfie. I will rebook Sarah again no worries.
