About Shar

If you are looking for someone to shower your pets will love and attention, that also has the experience and training to look after the health and wellness of your pet, look no further. I have a certificate in Basic Animal Sciences, Pet Sitting/Animal Training, and Pet First Aid/CPR. I worked in a veterinary hospital as a veterinary technician, so I can watch out for any health issues, assist with special needs, administer medications ect. I have cared for almost every pet/livestock in the book, and recently was involved in Pet Therapy with Outreach Therapy pets. I love animals and have done extensive volunteering at wildlife rescue centres, the SPCA, and with rescue groups. A genuine animal lover!

What I can offer:

Custom tailored programme for your pet

During our meet and greet and as I build a relationship with you and your pet I custom build a programme that will best support the overall wellbeing of your pet.

We will discuss your goals for your pet, and I will access various factors such as breed, age, fitness level, special needs, and of course the individual personality of your pet. I have a knack for reading body language and understanding pets needs and utilise this to support your pets overall wellness.

Experienced pet and house sitter

When I pet sit I put the animals needs first. I am diligent about the health and safety of the pets in my care and go to great lengths to ensure they are happy, healthy, and relaxed during my stay. I have been pet sitting since I was twelve years old and have looked after almost every type of pet and personality under the sun. In my experience I have seen that animals are the most comfortable when cared for in their own home, so I’m happy to come and learn your routine and normalise things for your pet. I'm currently taking a break from work, so I will be able to spend a majority of the day with your pets.

When it comes to looking after your home and property I am extremely careful and respectful. I’m a reliable, mature, non smoker that will look after your property as if it was my own. I will keep the place tidy, plants and gardens watered, mail collected, anything that needs doing, just let me know. You will return to a clean home, and happy pets.

Shar was so fantastic looking after my diabetic cat. Marley. It was a late notice booking over Christmas and Shar went above and beyond my expectations. My cats mean everything to me and Shar understood this and was so gracious in doing everything she could to keep the routine for Marley. My deepest thank you Shar. You are my first call everytime. xx
