About Ursula

ONLY TAKING OOKINGS ONE MONTH IN ADVANCE (ie short notice is fine, several months out is not)

Waiheke-based and available for walking, daysits and overnight sits - all sits are done in the owners house.

Being Waiheke, an island of events, I am often booked to stay with dogs while the owner is out at an event for the day or evening. We sit, hang-out and go for a walk all while you have a party free from worry.

Dogs and cats are where most of my experience lies. However, chickens, mice and guinea pigs are all animals I have looked after at some point in my life.

A previous client described me this way (other reviews are available on request):

"Ursula just completed a house sit at my place for the past 3 weeks and it was the best arrangement. My cats are happy (and better behaved), house is clean, plants are alive, I still have water and I got nice updates while I was away. My only concern is that she will be booked solid if I ever want to go away again :-)"

If you are going away (or coming to Waiheke) and would like your animals cared for in your own premises, then please don't hesitate to get in touch via the Pawshake app. I look forward to meeting you and your fur-people.

Ursula responded straight away to a last minute request as our dogs' mum was sick. She clicked with the dogs straight away and came back for three days, the last of which was the morning before lockdown which she kindly slotted in. We would definitely have Ursula back to lock after our girls!

Ursula was an absolute lifesaver for us and made the entire day so easy for us. She was great with our pet which made it comfortable for us to leave him for the day and she could not have been more accommodating. Would highly recommend for anyone else!
