About Michelle

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!
