About Jamie

I am a qualified veterinary nurse working right here in nelson. I have a special interest in canine behaviour. I am an advocate for having stress free animals. Paw shake is great as it helps to keep normality in their life. Being a vet nurse I have special skills when it comes to caring for pets that may need medications. As I have 2 dogs of my own I am not readily available for overnight stays, but would consider bringing other dogs into my own home as long as they are well behaved and get on well with other dogs. I am interested in dog walking and daily visits, for any range of species. I am going traveling in the near future and am needing to increase my savings for this, and I thought paw shake would be a great way to do so. Being part of paw shake is a great way to use my knowledge and abilities to care for you and your pets needs. As a vet nurse I have the ability to carry out basic health checks. So if you have a pet with special needs I'm your gal. This may include medications, recent surgery or a pet that you just think needs a little more care and knowledge then your average pet sitter . I'm also well aware of how to care for reactive dogs and how to give them a great quality of life even though you can not often do the same activities as you would with other dogs. I have my own car and am able to take your dog to different places for them to go for walks. I am physically fit and enjoy walking in nature. For this reason I'm a great fit for dogs with all exercise needs. 

I provide daily walking up to 2 x a day.

Daily visits up to 2 x a day 

For the right candidit over night stays 

Care for any range of species 

I am located in Central Nelson
