About Claire

I love house and dog sitting for people in the Auckland area. As I cannot have an animal in my current living situation, this means I get a break from flatting life and spend time with your furry friends - treating them like my own. The exercise is an added bonus too! I don't have many photos with the animals I've looked after with me in them as I think they are the stars.

Everyone I have house sat or pet sat before has used me again from 2 day trips up to 2 month stays.

I work full time between 7-4pm but walk the dogs I look after in the morning and again once I get home. I flat so therefore I can only provide house/dog/cat sitting in your own home, the perks of this is the added security and I will also bring in your mail and water your plants (plus anything else you need taken care of). I ensure I leave the house as you left it - clean and tidy with freshly washed sheets.

I have grown up with dogs and cats my whole life and feel comfortable controlling bigger dogs. I am also comfortable administering their oral or skin medication if needed. I have volunteered with animal shelters before and have studied a course in dog training.

A bit about me = I'm a 31-year-old kiwi who is working full time whilst studying communications & public relations. I am hardworking, responsible and love to go on big walks (a plus for your dog!). During the week I study after work or watch a bit of Netflix, so I am very quiet and up at 5am each morning, ready to go for another walk! During the weekends I once again go on walks (I'm on a bit of a weight loss journey!!), cook and have a wine or hit the beach. I would love to provide comfort to your pet while you are away.

I am clean, tidy, quiet, friendly and will treat your home with respect and if as if it was my own. I provide lots of cuddles to your furry loved ones. I also suggest taking your dog for at least 2 walks in advance (free) so they can get used to me. I also send photos and updates of your pet for ease of mind during your time away through email, skype, or Facebook.
