Kia ora! My name is Bianka. :)
If you are looking for an experienced, kind, patient and reliable dog walker or cat/dog sitter, please get in touch.
I have a genuine love for all animals and a calm demeanour. I understand that pets are family members and I will take care of your much-loved pets as I take care of my own.
I have extensive experience with dogs and cats, having lived with cats my whole life, worked and volunteered with dogs for many years, and undertaken study and training in animal welfare.
In 2018, I completed a Certificate in Animal Welfare Investigations through Unitec. This involved training in animal care, animal behaviour, nose-to-tail health checks, first aid, as well as work experience with the SPCA.
In 2016, I completed pet first aid training through Pet First Aid & Training NZ.
I have gained dog handling skills through many years of dog walking in the community and volunteering at shelters in New Zealand and overseas. I have provided care for dogs and cats, including high needs pets requiring daily medication. I have supported foster carers for an Auckland-based dog rescue by walking and socialising foster dogs, providing behavioural enrichment, and transporting dogs to/from veterinary appointments. Volunteering with rescue dogs, in particular, has increased my confidence in handling and caring for dogs from diverse backgrounds.
I have a clear Ministry of Justice criminal conviction check and can provide this documentation on request.
I very much look forward to providing love, companionship and exercise for your much-loved furry family members.
* Dog walking🐕
We can discuss your dog’s needs and preferences - from short to longer walks, on or off lead, once or twice daily.
* Dog care in your home 🐕
Tailored to your dog’s needs, this can include: feeding your dog, playing with them, grooming, letting them out of and returning to crate, and generally making them feel happy and loved.
* Cat care in your home 🐈
Tailored to your cats needs and preferences, this can include: feeding your cat, cleaning litter tray/scooping litter, playing and spending time with them, pats, grooming, and generally giving love, attention and cuddles (if they are into cuddles!).
* Optional extras 🏡✉
I am happy to open/close your curtains and blinds, water your plants, and clear your letterbox.
Bianka is always wonderful to work with :)
Bianka is amazing! Feel so lucky and grateful to have found Bianka!
She shows so much care and love to our little cat and we felt so comfortable going away knowing she was in such safe hands. Could genuinely not wish for someone better to take care of our fur baby 😁.
(Not to mention all the little extra bits she did-cleaned up etc-above and beyond!)
Thank you Bianka!
