Animal crazy since childhood, always busy dog walking, cat feeding and house sitting in my local community, I'm always attatched to a different furry friend!
Im a mum of 3 grown lovely fun energetic boys, I love to hike, paddleboard and explore and did I mention love to cuddle animals!
I have numerous awesome house sits under my belt now and am always excited about meeting new furry friends. We have been dog boarding for the last year as we have a huge fenced garden and a great puppy proof main space. Between myself, who works from home and 2 adult boys there is always someome at home cuddle and keep the dogs company.
I was an airbnb host for a number of years, so really got to see how lovely it was with guests that treated our home respect. My motto is to tread light in the houses i stay in, keep clean tidy and be really mindful that someone has trusted me with not only their home but also their pet.
Meeting lovely families and getting a peek into their lives is a real honour.
Getting to experience that day families return and I see the joy in both pet and owner as they are reunited. Priceless!
Im very comfortable doing most things in the house and doing as much walking and playing as animals want.
I really love dog walking, especially when they get off leash time and you see the happiness of the dogs when they can just run and run, not unlike toddlers, full of curiosity and boundless energy! My dog walks are 1 hour, I collect the dogs and try and find an intetesting walk in the locality, and I allow plenty of sniffing and playing time. Dog walks are not just about exersice but mental stimulation is important also.
Just ask for a meet and greet, meeting someone in person really is the best way to see if we are a good fit for each other. Happy to do a zoom meet and greet for people outside of Auckland.
Alexandra was a great pet sitter. She forwarded photos of the pets every day and kept us updated about their health. Would definitely book again.
Alexandra is very efficient and quick to respond. She took good care of our cat and watered the plants while we were away. She also sent pictures of our happy cat, which was much appreciated!
Happy with rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals.
