About Lakyn

Hey there I'm Lakyn! I'm 23 years old and work full time at an Insurance Brokerage in Tauranga. I've grown up with pets my whole life (cats, dogs, bunnies and rats), and currently, I have an adorable Kitty called Frankie.

I absolutely love pets and would love the opportunity to look after them and offer my services. My services include housesitting, and home visits! Sadly I can't homesit any pets because the house is not my own, but I'm happy to come to you.

As I've grown up with all types of fury friends, I know how to look after them and I'm super comfortable around them so you wouldn't need to worry about us. I have a fair bit of experience with pet feeding, house sitting and dog walking as during my years at university, I had quite a few regular clients. I also volunteered at an animal shelter where I was looking after over 10 kittens at a time.

I do work Monday to Friday, but I'm also pretty flexible with notice. I'm happy to pet feed after I finish work at 5 (And could possibly pet feed before work depending on the area you live in), and I can pet sit at any time on the weekends.

For housesitting, I can housesit anytime I am available. If possible, I do prefer to have my partner housesit with me due to convenience, however, exceptions can be made if this is a problem! My partner's name is Leo and he has housesit with me quite a few times before so he is comfortable with pets too. I have included some photos of him too so you can have a look.

I also have my own vehicle so if you need a service for your pet, I would love the opportunity! Thank you and have a nice day. :)

House Sitting
Lizzie, 2021-04-25

Lakyn was a fantastic house sitter. She managed our troupe of pets easily including our two large dogs. She was even happy to walk our 38kg pup who can be a bit iffy around other dogs at times. House was lovely and tidy, and all the pets were very content and happy when we got back. Great communication all the way through. Will definitely book again.

Lakyn was amazing!! Very friendly, reliable and excellent communication. She looked after our place really well and we returned to very happy and well cared for pets. She even went the extra mile and took our dog out for a run around the beach and bath afterwards. We will definitely book her again in future. Thanks again!

  • I volunteered at an animal shelter for three months which gave me the experience of looking after many animals at one time.
  • I love going for walks and find walking with dogs very enjoyable.
  • I've also volunteered with guide dog organisations where the dogs have been present all day and needed looking after.
  • My mother has an elderly cat who needs oral medication, and I have administered this to him on many housesits.
