I am 26 and work full time in a marketing position in Palmerston North. From Christchurch but have lived in PN for 7 years. I'm a young professional and currently renting. I love animals and miss my family dog and cats so am hoping to spread the love to your fur babies.
Over the past year I have been a house and pet sitter on 4 occasion (in town and on rurual properties). In 2019 I spent 6 weeks house sitting looking after cats. I have looked after big and small breeds. I am a calm presence with your pets and will work to slowly gain their trust so they feel comfortable with me. I can provide references if required.

What I expect:
Any behavioural issues of the pet are disclosed

I am happy to take dogs for walks and play ball. Walks start at $20 per hour ($5 extra per dog). After a while of getting to know your pet I can also take them to the beach or other off leash areas. Beach trip would be $35 for hours. (This factors in driving time).
House and pet sitting:
I'm available to house sit for multiple nights (up to 2 weeks or negotiable). Included pet sitting services I provide general up keep of the house, ie brining in mail/signing for packages, taking out rubbish bins. I would be at the property from 6pm-7am (with some flexibility) each night. During the day I am at work. If required I can walk you dog up to 30 mins x 2 each day for a extra cost of $20 (as listed above).
Daily feeding and picture:
I can check up/ feed on your pet up to twice a day for 15 mins (am before work, pm after work/gym). If your pet requires medication I am also happy to administer oral medication. I will take a picture of your fluffy friend so you know they are happy. If you require any household duties to be carried out please opt for a house sitting arrangement and we can discuss the tasks you would like me to carry out. (Note: if you don’t want me to stay at the property that is fine).
I am reliable and organised and will make sure your pets get the best care I can provide while your away.
Devon came into feed my puppy for a week. She spent about half an hour each day with him, communication was excellent, she sent though photos and keep me updated the light the weekend. Will definitely be using Devon again.
