About Holly

I'm a 25 year old living in Central Auckland, looking for a puppy fix. Renting in the city has lead me to a life of cat ownership (which I love!), but I feel everyone needs a little puppy love in their life. In fact, I feel everyone needs all kinds of animal love in their life.

Experience with animals:

I have been working with animals since 2012 - both as a paid job and voluntarily. I have two and half years experience working at a pet store, and a further two years experience as a foster parent and volunteer at the SPCA. I have handled dogs, cats, rabbits, rats/mice, birds, and exotic animals, including the routine care of reptiles and tropical fish. I have a cat and three guinea pigs of my own who are very spoiled!

My goal in life is to have my own miniature zoo - but until then, I aim to spend as much time with animals as I can while making their fur parents' lives as easy as possible!

Services I am happy to offer are:

Regular dog walking (weekday evenings & weekends, weekday mornings can be negotiated)

Home drop-ins (feeding, basic grooming (if necessary), litter tray/enclosure maintenance)

Giving medication (including de-fleaing, de-worming, etc)

Long-term drop-ins and/or walking (for those away on long trips)

Overnight/weekend stays at pet's own home

Animals I am happy to work with:

Dogs

Cats

Small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, rats etc)

Birds (aviary and hand-raised)

Exotic animals (reptiles (such as bearded dragons, turtles, and geckos), chinchillas and aquariums)

I can't wait to meet your furry friends, build some great relationships and make awesome memories!

Holly did an amazing job looking after our two cats. I would highly recommend her and will definitely be booking again!

Dog Walking
Eleanor, 2019-10-18

Holly was fantastic - quick to respond and arrange a meet & greet, took a liking to our dog, Jess, immediately and we felt like it was a great fit. She offered to walk Jess at our local park, play with her and go over basic training which will benefit Jess a great deal. Jess looked very happy on her walk! We are looking forward to a great ongoing relationship with Holly as our weekly dog walker - she is loving and caring towards animals, confident around energetic dogs and very professional. Would highly recommend!
