About Mint

Thanks for checking out my profile. :) I'm a Thai Texan/Californian American who's currently in her fourth year of vet school at Massey University in Palmerston North. I love dogs and hope to one day be able to foster/adopt one from Retired Working Dogs NZ. (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 horses, sheep, and cattle.

I have been with Pawshake for about a year 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!

Fantastic! After meeting Mint and seeing the positive response from our dog to a stranger we knew we had the right person. If you need someone to look after your fur babies, choose Mint! The updates were well received by us and she took the time to send pictures as well. Highly recommended!!
