About Kate

*BOOKS CLOSED AS AT 29/5/24. Due to a change in jobs I am no longer able to take any further bookings for 2024. All current bookings will still be fufilled :) *

Hello! My name is Kate I am 30 years old and I live and work in Hamilton. I currently work part time, 1pm-7:30pm, Tuesday to Saturday. I have had all sorts of animals since I was young but sadly as I rent millennial vs housing market am I riiiiight I am unable to have my own furbabies at home so I would love the opportunity to spend time caring for others. 

I have over 10 years experience working in the equine industry and during this time I cared for many different animals and livestock. I understand the struggles and restrictions that come with owning pets but I also understand how important it is to have someone you trust and THEY trust to care for them when required. 

Hopefully this is where I can help you! I would like to offer my services of:

  • Dog walking: A minimum of 45 minutes including off leash time and toy chasing depending on the dog. Walks can be local or further a field if you are happy for me to drive your dog somewhere like a lake or local park. 
  • Home visits: Home visits including a good play time with your pet checking all food water etc and ensuring they are safe and happy. Home visits can be once or twice a day and all visits will be a minimum of 30 minutes so you can rest assured your pets are being properly cared for. I am also happy to check the security of your property, collect mail, put bins out or anything else you may require.
  • House sitting: I will stay at your house with your pets looking after their every need. I do work 1pm - 7:30pm Tuesday to Saturday so I cannot be with you pet 24 hours a day if that is what they require. Outside of this i will be with your pet the entire time having all their needs catered for. 
  • I treat, love and care for all animals I look after as my own without spoiling them or ignoring any training you may have done. With all my services you will receive consistent updates including pictures and videos about your furbaby so you know they are receiving the best of care. I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your precious pets. ❤ 😊

    I can't thank you enough for all you do for Yarra... she certainly needs no encouragement to get out of bed. She rushes to the door to meet you. I highly recommend Kate, she loves the dogs and I'm so grateful for her help.
