Hello! I am from Vancouver, Canada currently in New Zealand on a working holiday visa for two years. I am in Christchurch now and working in the city for a few months. Since I am new to Christchurch, I will be doing a lot of exploring throughout the city and parks and I would love to bring your pet along with me! I enjoy nearly everything when it comes to the outdoors; hiking, camping, swimming, kayaking, biking, yoga-ing, running, jumping, skipping and hula hooping, to name a few.
I would love to dog walk or house sit for your pets as I grew up with a golden retriever for 9 years and I worked at an animal hospital for two summers. As a kennal attendant, I was in charge of feeding, exercising, cleaning, medicating, bathroom-breaking and keeping our four-legged clients comfortable and happy during their clinic visits or boarding at the animal hospital. I am confident with animals that are shy, timid, nervous or potentially aggressive. I am very patient and I understand that a pet might not feel comfortable around a new person at first.
I recently have been volunteering with a canine education company including nosework classes, primary and puppy classes and decoy sessions. I would be more than happy to share my dog training knowledge with you!
I can provide dog walks up to one hour in length and depending on your dog's fitness level our outing can be spent walking or running. I am open to discuss walking for longer lengths of time with appropriate cost. Home visits would depend on your pet, but on average I would spend at least 30 minutes with your pet feeding, relieving, belly-rubbing and medicating them and completing any other tasks you may request.
I am able to transport myself to your household through public transit and my own two feet. I am unfortunately not able host any boarding services as my housemates already own a cat. I am available during most days and some evenings and weekends
as I work at a brewery restaurant part-time. My
schedule is fairly flexible so if there is a certain time you would prefer me to walk or visit your pet I am more than happy to accommodate.
If you are interested in me caring for your pet, know that they will be in trusty behind-the-ear-scratching hands and I will do my best to ensure we have a great time together. Thank you for reading my bio and I look forward to meeting you and your furry companion!
Storm came back from her walk calmed and tuckered out, Michelle did an awesome job!
Very responsive and reliable. Very good at reading our pup's needs and teaching her good habits. Highly recommended :-).
