About Michelle

My motivation to be a pet sitter lies with the fact that I have a passion for animals as well as the health and care of them. I love all animals, big and small, and will go out of my way to ensure your pet is taken care of, ensuring they recieve my undivded attention.

I currently work as a vet nurse but love to pet sit and/or dog walk with the rest if my time. I have a vehicle which allows me to have a reliable mode of transport to reach your location. With your permission, I can also use this vehicle to transport your pet to the dog park, vet appoinments etc. I have gained a lot of experience from various different pet sitting jobs, including overseas house/pet sitting. As well as this, I am a qualified veterinary nurse and have had experience in various animal facilities including the SPCA and vet clinics. Therefore, I am able to enusre the best care is given; including care of young, geriatric or ill animals. I am confident with types of demenours as well medicating animals and nursing them if required. I also hold a pet first aid certificate. I have no restrictions to the species, size or breed of pet. I can offer: Overnight pet/house sitting Day visits Dog walking (40 min - 1hr = $20... Can walk longer if needed for an extra charge (: ) Grooming (Nail clipping, bathing etc) And more, just ask! I have many pet sitting references if required :)

House Sitting

We booked Michelle as a last minute saviour to our weekend away after our other arrangement fell through and we couldn't have been happier with the result. Our nervous pound pup settled down quickly and Michelle kept us updated with some nice photos and messages. The house was left clean and tidy. We will definitely be booking another stay.

Michelle was amazing with my dog Inka, Inka was happy and chilled when we came home and our house was clean! We highly recommend her 😊
