About Avani

My name is Avani,

I have recently qualified as a Veterinary Nurse and have worked in a veterinary clinic for just over a year, therefore, I am experienced in caring for a range of animals and you can take comfort in knowing your fur baby will be in the best possible hands.

I relocated to Queenstown in November, I am from Whangarei in Northland and grew up in the Hokianga in the far north. I always knew I wanted to work with animals as I have a passion for them and have always had animals in my care. In Whangarei I would regularly pet-sit, the two dogs I would care for had specific needs such as medications, special diet requirements, and exercise regimes, so I am competent with more complicated pet needs.

I am available to pet-sit, dog-walk, and do house visits during the day. At this time I can not provide daycare services as the flat I live in doesn't allow pets. However, I am more than happy to care for them in their own home.

I work in a Veterinary Clinic here in Queenstown, therefore I am available outside of my work hours. When a pet is in my care I will be with it 24/7 and will be able to keep in contact and provide photos/updates regularly.

For dog-walking, I would prefer a max of 2 per household (up for discussion with specific situations) as this will mean I can provide a productive and rewarding walk for each pet. The walk will be a minimum of half an hour and a maximum of 2 hours with the price varying depending on time, and the location will be local walking tracks around Queenstown. Included in the cost will be the pick-up and drop-off of the dog(s).

Home visits will be adaptable depending on the situation and I would prefer to discuss what a home visit will look like with you personally.

Pet-sitting price will vary depending on how long, however, I will be able to do short and long-term sits including day sits or multiple days/nights, however as previously stated it will have to be in your home as I can't have pets currently. I am comfortable with a range of animals including large animals and exotics.

I am super excited to get to know you and your pets, and please don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions,

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile!

Avani.
