I am currently residing in Palmerston North City, I live with my partner and my cat Coco (after Coco Chanel) I'm happy to walk dogs, in house feeding and pet sitting in your own home. I have grown up around pets and at my parents house i am surrounded by one dog, 3 cats, 8 chickens, 2 kunekune pigs and goldfish. I am fully qualified Veterinary Technologist and work at Massey in the Emergency department. I work a 6 day on, 4 day off roster so am pretty flexible with bookings!
I have skills through both my study and work in aspects of handling, husbandary, behaviour, identifying illness and I am able to do first aid and medicating. I am competent around any dog, cat, or small mammal (rabbit, guinea pig, rat, mouse), as well as most large animals. I am particularly interested in behaviour so am happy to work with basic commands. I also am competent at administering medications and recognising signs of illness.
I may be able to do basic training with dogs: sit, come, drop, walking on the lead. (on case-by-case basis)
I am happy to dog walk and home visits to all types of pets, i am competent in administering medications and dealling with special needs animals because of my work experience. I love all animals and would really enjoy meeting your pet! If your pet is staying in my hone i would like to keep their routine as normal as possible and they would sleep in the lounge or spare bedroom. We have a medium sized backyard that is not fully fenced but is back from the road, your dog would not be left unsupervised in the yard.
I enjoy walking dogs and am happy to travel to wherever your dog is used to going for a walk! Or new places if they are happy to travel in the car. Usually I will aim for atleast a 45 minute walk unless otherwise arranged beforehand. I dont mind walking rain or shine and am happy to walk dogs just on lead, or let them off if they have a good recall.
I am fully qualified Vet Tech, so you can have peace of mind that your animal is in capable hands when they are with me, whether you are at work or in another country I will always ensure your pets are happy, safe and healthy!
Amberlee was able to look after my cats at quite short notice which was much appreciated. She kept me well updated everyday on everyone which gave me a lot of peace of mind. I knew my cats were well taken care of. Thank you so much!!
Came home after 5 days to very happy, healthy animals. My high stress medical maintenance pup was well looked after:) would highly recommend her to anyone.
