About Tuscany

Hi my name is Tuscany and am a true animal lover! I am currently working part time as a teacher aide at golden sands school and studying full time to earn my bachelor of teaching primary.

I have grown up around all kinds of animals for as long as I remember and love all animals big and small! I am a horse rider who has lived on large animal farms where we have had sheep, pigs, goats, horses, deer, cows. I have also owned small and large dogs. I have had pet cats, rabbits, birds, rats, even a wallaby! There isn’t one animal I wouldn’t be happy to look after!

I understand that our pets are a part of the family and I promise to treat your pet as a part of my family while they are in my care.

My deepest passion would have to be my horse riding, I have been doing that since I was 6 years old and still do it to this day. I have used my equine knowledge for paid work in the United States Of America teaching natural horsemanship at a summer camp. When I returned from USA I lived in Queenstown for 4 months working as a horse trekking guide.

If you would like to know anything else about myself or my services feel free to get in contact!

I offer dog walking of a minimum 45 minutes

I am happy to call in once or twice a day for feeding and check ups or your small- medium size pet can come for a holiday at my home where I am only away from home a few hours at a time during the week. I live in Mount Maunganui just across the road from a park and just down the street from the beach so plenty of fun places to take your dog on walks while they stay with me!

I’m my profile photo is myself and my partner Fraser. It is just the two of us in our two bedroom unit. Fraser grew up in Scotland and has lived in New Zealand for 5 years now. He is also a passionate animal lover so when your fur baby comes to stay with us they will be sure to get plenty of attention!
