About Sophie

Welcome to my pet page, i'm Soph! I am from the UK and have been brought up with dogs ever since I was born, so I am used to them being part of the family. I would love to be able to care for your pets, take them for walks, feed them and generally help you out while you're away. I work full-time during the week, but I am available on weekends and in the evenings for house sits. During the week I work as an Animal Compliance Officer so I help save the stray doggies around Auckland. I am fully comfortable around oral medications and understand that this is sometimes a requirement (I have done both dog & cat sits through Pawshake that have needed this previously). I am very passionate about caring for animals and learning about how they react to different situations and their behaviour. I have just passed an Animal Care course and will go on to studying Bachelors in Animal Management so I can eventually become a Guide Dog Mobility Instructor or Police Dog Handler to help the community. Pawshake for me is a good way to meet lots of different breeds of animals and find out more about them, and also so I can get my doggie fix. I absolutely LOVE spending time with dogs in particular, but if you have any other animals that you need help with, that is ok also. Through Pawshake I have looked after dogs, cats, fish, hampsters and even ducks! Looking forward to hearing from you soon! :)

I can’t recommend Sophie enough! Our animals were happy, she was so responsible and conscientious… and left the house absolutely spotless!

Sophie was absolutely wonderful - sent photos every day, came home at lunchtime to give extra walks, left the house immaculate and even washed the bedding she left. Very much recommend her, hope she can house sit again.
