About Brinnie

*** CURRENTLY TAKING A BREAK FROM PAWSHAKE TO FOCUS ON STUDIES***

Kia ora koutou! I am a lover of ALL animals, and I believe all deserve to be treated with love, kindness, respect & awe! Animals can teach us so much, if we are open to learn :) I have had cats for all of my life, even while overseas, and I always had dogs while previously living in NZ. This year I started a course in Canine Behaviour & Management at Unitec. I hope to go on from this course to learn how to train service dogs, specifically companion dogs to assist people with autism & their families. I am able to host & care for your dogs at my home. It is fenced & there is a garden space to run around in. I am able to pick up your dogs (within west/central-west Auckland area) to take them for walks and/or bring them back to my place if you require me to mind them for longer periods. I love to catsit, and I can come to your house to mind your cats, dogs or other pets if they are more comfortable at home. "Minding" includes walking, cleaning/changing litter trays, cuddling, hanging out, playing, brushing/grooming, administering medications if needed. We can discuss all of yours & your pets' needs in this context, I am open and willing to assisting you and your family however I can. I live with two other housemates, two dogs & one cat. Guest pets sleep in in the lounge. We have a medium sized yard, completely fenced with secure gates. All dog walks are for 30-45 minutes, though it can be longer if I have the time (no extra cost). I love to take photos and videos of animals, so you will receive regular updates about how your little one (or not-so-little-one) is doing through the stay. Get in touch with me to discuss what you need, I am at your service :)

House Sitting

Brinnie is amazing with animals and really mindful of how anxious I was feeling about leaving my cat Frank while I went on holiday.

She was great at keeping in touch to let me know how he was doing while I was away.

When I came home, the house was really tidy and Frank was a happy cat.

Dog Boarding
Debra, 2019-11-13

Brinnie was everything I hoped for and more. She stayed at our place for a week, and our rather needy dog Pumba absolutely fell in love with her. It was such a relief to be able to leave him in good, loving care in his own home. Brinnie was careful and respectful of our home, and sent us regular feedback about what she and Pumba were doing. I would strongly recommend her to other dog-lovers - she's the BEST!
