About Marika

Hello my name is Marika! I’m 25 years old and have a lot of free time in my hands right now. So why not do something I love which is to hang out with dogs! I very much love animals, especially dogs and cats and I care about their well being a lot! I also foster kittens and cats through Cat Rescue Christchurch.

I lived in Canada for a year and during my time there, I was able to look after people's dogs (through another app in Canada)

which was fantastic! Being able to take care of dogs and hang out with them even during my travel was such a perk! I also volunteered a couple of times at the SPCA there as well.

I grew up in Japan until the age of 10 and when I would go to the parks, I would see my regular dog friends and knew the names of all of them! My mum was told by one of the owners that she would only trust me to walk their dog on the lead amongst all other kids at the park. I think this shows that I was reliable and responsible with animals from a very young age! :)

I will take care of your animals like thier my own and give them the love and care that they deserve!

A bit about my service:

Dog Walking

I live in Cashmere and have my own car so I have easy access to uphill dog parks or parks nearby. I am happy to drive to your house and walk them around your area if it is not too far away from me. Otherwise, dropping off at my house is not a problem and I could drop them back to your place if it's easier for you. (if not too far) The walk will be about 30-40 minutes.

I am available Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm for dog walking

(also available during some weekends as long as I know in advance)

Home Visits

Home visits will be about 30 minutes where I can check on your pets and play with them if they want to! I will also feed/replenish their water for them if need be.

(dogs,cats,rabbits,guineapigs,etc) I will also messege you and send you pictures.

I am available Monday-Friday from 9am to 8pm for a home visit

(also available during some weekends as long as I know in advance)

Please feel free to ask me any inquiries or questions!

Dog Walking
Chloe, 2021-03-05

Marika was an excellent dog walker for my dog Banjo! He was very excited to see her even though they have never met! She was very friendly and made sure he never came off the lead as he is not a good listener and he needs to be kept on lead. She updated me half way through the walk on how he was going and sounded like he was loving the walk. I Would trust her completely and recommend her to everyone!! 🙂
