About Mint

Thanks for checking out my profile. :) I'm a Thai Texan/Californian American who recently graduated vet school (Class of 2021!) from Massey University in Palmerston North. I enjoy petsitting and will continue to do so for the timebeing. :) I love dogs and hope to one day be able to foster/adopt one. (Obviously, animals are my passion but a cool fact about me is that I LOVE primates - if you do too, then we'll be fast friends!)

I am very experienced in animal care and handling having been an Adoption/Animal Care Specialist at my local animal shelter and as a vet technician at a 24-hour emergency hospital for companion and exotic pets. I have also volunteered at a zoo, wildlife sanctuaries, and community vaccine clinics for pets of low-income residents. I have also worked on various farms throughout the country and have spent time caring for chickens, horses, sheep, and cattle.

I have been with Pawshake for about two years now, and I enjoy being able to care and provide love for your animals as if they were my own. My services include:

*DOG WALKS: 30-minutes to 1 hour depending on owner's wish

*ONE & TWO HOME VISITS: Includes dog walk(s) if applicable

*HOUSE SITTING: Includes occasional trips on dog-friendly hikes and beaches (in addition to regular walks) if applicable and depending on owner's wish as well as retrieving your mail, taking out trash/recycling, watering your garden, and any other needs your home may require

*DAILY updates and pictures are provided with each booking depending on the owner's wish

I'm very detailed-oriented, a great listener, and a strong communicator. Rest assured - your pet will be in good hands with me!
