Kia Ora! My name's Rebecca I am currently based in Nelson. I have experience housesitting and pet sitting for multiple years from short to longer term.
I have experience with labs, poodles, puppies, older dogs, smaller dogs, pedigree cats, long haired cats, kittens, socially anxious/ seperation anxiety animals, fish, pigs, chickens, animals with high needs, behavioural challenges, health conditions and degenerative conditions.
I am starting a certificate in animal care in March :)
I love plants so happy to care for indoor plants or outdoor gardens/ vege patches, watering, collecting mail and putting out the bins are part of the Housesitting service.
I have experience walking a Range of dogs including puppies training: staffy crosses, poodle crosses, retrievers and labs, love mixed breed dogs of all sizes. I am happy to walk multiple dogs at once. I ask that you communicate your dogs understanding of basic commands such as sit, wait, and how well they walk on a lead and how they respond to other dogs. I encourage off lead exercise where practical.
I work part time in multiple roles with caregiving and cooking, so although I am productive, I always have time to give your animals attention and exercise in the morning and in the evening. I work short shifts through the weekends so I have time slots during the day to visit your animals. When I am not working I enjoy running, dance, Pilates, art, spending time with my family and gardening.
You animals will be well cared for, given cuddles, walked/ or run if they are able to, fed and given treats (if allowed), and your home kept secure whilst you are away :) I can do 3 visits a day if requested. Happy to follow all animal food instructions- eg. all meat diets or vegetable mixes.
I am happy to provide dog walking, running, trips to the beach, park or river, animal home visits, or stay in your home. I am respectful and tidy. I will leave your home secure and as lovely as you left it.
I enjoy keeping in contact with my house owners and often send photos and updates during stays. I would be happy to meet and greet you and your animals before you make a decision- or via phone or video chat. I have a clean police record and can provide reviews. I am happy to administer medication. I ask for emergency contact details, vet details and a run through of your animals routines and into about the house ie. keys, security. I am currently taking bookings in Nelson and Tasman/ surrounding areas.
I welcome any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Rebecca was amazing housesitting our 2 cats. Throughout the stay she sent timely daily updates and photos of our cats so we need had a single moment of concern. Rebecca is professional and was most flexible and accommodating when we needed to add an extra night onto her stay. I can't recommend her enough.
