About Aisleen

Hello, I am Aisleen, a 31 year old New Zealand resident originally from England. I work and live in Frankton so these areas and surrounds are easy for me. I would happily discuss any suburbs in the Wakatipu region as I have a car, though further distances may require petrol costs. I am available for daily visits, walks and house sitting for any manner of animal.

I have a bachelors with honours in Animal Biology which had modules such as behaviour and nutrition. My study choice shows how I have had a love of animal welfare for quite some time. After graduating, I spent 3 years in Australia and New Zealand in the marine biology sector with a focus on megafauna, specifically dolphins, whales and sharks.

Personally, I have had a range of pets including dogs, cats, lizards, snakes and rabbits. Throughout university I assisted a colleague who helped source animals required for zoo breeding programmes to increase their populations. Through his license I assisted in the relocation and brief care between zoos of a wide range of exotic animals including flying foxes, caimans, sugar gliders and meerkats, to name a few.

Unfortunately, I am not currently in a circumstance to have my own pets full time and sadly, after my family dog passed away back home, there is a hole in my life that a family pet should fill.

I have fostered kittens through Queenstown Cat Rescue and have cat and dog sat for an array of people in the region, which I can happily provide references from. I have more time and love to give to furry family members so would love to help out if you need me.

I can administer basic medication, continued training and general grooming.

I will bring in any mail and water your plants. I worked for 6 years in horticulture so if you have further garden or plant needs this can be discussed.

I can stay in contact, including with happy pet pictures, and any changes with the pet will be communicated. I will take to the vet if needed or when agreed upon.

Monday- Friday I will be around in the mornings for a shorter home visit and can bring in well behaved pets into the office and give them a short walk at lunch. Then from 4pm and through the evenings I can offer longer time frames and available all through the weekend.

Day visits are a minimum of 30 mins and includes love, pets and play, feeding and watering, cleaning up after pet.

Walks are a minimum of 30 minutes, though my preferred loop with or without a pet companion takes about an hour. If younger or older pets require a short walk, we can discuss this as well as on lead or off lead options. The location will be a local track to the house or if you have a preferred walk for your pooch let me know.

It would be great to meet to discuss if we would be a fit so please message any questions you may have.

Aisleen looked after our three pets (two cats, one dog) for two nights recently. She really cares about the animals and was very attentive to their needs. Her communication was great, keeping us updated on how they were going. Very highly recommended!
