Hi, I'm Ruth!

I do work during the day as well, unfortunately this means I am unavailable do day time dog/puppy sitting.
I am a big fan of all animals, I volunteered at the SPCA Canterbury for 18 months before moving up to Auckland to begin my study into animal sciences. I'm am currently studying a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing at Unitec.

Specific Skills

I speak English
Familiar with dog training techniques
< 5 years of experience

I'm best with cats, been around them my whole life, but I'm good with dogs, never let go of the leash when walking, especially with those big boys!

If I take the dogs out for a long walk where they get quite dirty (along the beach/river) I make sure they are well cleaned down and dry before they're allowed inside!

I volunteered at the SPCA Canterbury for a year and a half before I moved up to Auckland to begin studying Animal Sciences. Hoping to obtain a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing when I am done (2017).
