About Sophie

Hi! I'm Sophie, a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse who is available to care for your fur-kids while you are away on holiday or busy at work!

I hold my Diploma in Veterinary Nursing and have trained in animal first aid. I have previous experience pet sitting, dog walking and house sitting. I have studied canine behaviour and have worked with many different breeds and temperaments. I live in Opawa with my labrador pup Tui, am active and love getting out for walks.

I am happy to work with you and your pet to arrange a plan that works best for you. I know that it can be a very stressful time when you go away so I strive to stick to the same routine as best I can to ensure you and your fur baby are happy.

DOG WALKING

I am avaliable for dog walking mornings, lunch time and evenings, and can safely take a family of dogs up to 4 depending on the size and temperament. The walk will be 1 hour long and we will either walk at a favourite local spot, go to the dog park for some off leash fun and socialisation or, for the water babies, go to the beach for a swim! After the walk I will ensure they are clean and dry and have fresh water. Tasty natural treats are provided during the walk unless specified not too.

HOME BOARDING

I am able to provide home boarding at my home as long as your pet feels comfortable with my labrador pup Tui. I have a large sunny, secure yard and a sheltered deck. While your pet is in my care they will receive 24/7 supervision as I am home during the day.

They will have a spot to call their own in the living area which they can have access to for naps and is where they will sleep during the night. Including my dog, I will only allow a max of 3 depending on the size and temperaments. I live with one quiet, full time working flatmate, who is home in the evenings. I also have a confident cat who is used to meeting lots of dogs. He has his own space in the front lawn and front area of the house.

Drop-off time - after 2pm

Pick-up time - before 11am

HOME VISITS

I am available for home visits in the morning, lunch time and/or evenings. Home visits are approx 30 minutes and will include, feeding, refilling water bowls, checking bedding, daily grooming, any cleaning up after your pet that is required and a short play.

HOUSE-SITTING (I am currently unavailiable for house-sitting)

I am able to house-sit at your home and keep your fur baby company over night. I will spend the evenings, overnight and early mornings at your home. I will ensure your pet has been exercised and fed before leaving them during the day.

I will ensure your pet continues to learn good habits during our time together with a focus on recall. If your pet is in training I will ensure any training is continued while they are in my care.

I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your fur babies and look forward to hearing from you! :-)

It was such a relief to leave our cat Maisey in such greats hands while we went away for 7 nights. Maisey was well cared for and medicated by Sophie twice a day. Sophie even took the time to spend time with Maisey during the day and sent us regular photos. Sophie was friendly and professional. Maisey and I look forward to using her services again :)
