About Bianka

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 am currently studying part-time and have some flexibility for dog walking and in-your-own-home dog and cat care. I very much look forward to providing love, companionship and exercise for your beloved furry family members.

SERVICES PROVIDED INCLUDE:

* Dog walking.

* Dog care in your home (e.g. feeding your dog, playing with them, and generally making them feel happy and loved).

* Cat care in your home (e.g. spending time with your cat, feeding them, cleaning their litter tray, and cuddling them - if they are into cuddles!).

Bianka was excellent. Very prompt communication. She enjoyed looking after Clancy and he certainly enjoyed her company - he told me!!

Bianka was incredibly loving, thoughtful, and communicative with our cat when we took a two-week road trip. We looked forward to her picture updates and saw our cat becoming best friends with her. Our cat is very playful and Bianka really engaged her and made her comfortable.

We will definitely be requesting Bianka look after our cat in the future!
