About Amelia

Dog Walker, Cat Feeder, House Sitter

Hi there, I'm Amelia and I'm a 21-year-old university student studying zoology and management.

I absolutely love animals - hence the zoology degree!

I am originally from Christchurch and am really missing my pets back home, and unfortunately due to renting all I am currently allowed in my flat is my fish tank! I have grown up around all types of animals, cats, dogs, horses, cows, sheep, fish, rabbits, you name it. I also do weekly volunteering at the SPCA which gives me experience working with a range of animals and their needs.

I would love to care for your pets! I offer dog walking service, as well as pet care in the owners home and pet sitting in the owners home. The number of visits per day, duration of visits, length of walks are all negotiable to fit the needs of each individual pet, and I can work with you to find the best solution for this.

I have previous experience house sitting on lifestyle blocks caring for large animals, as well as also feeding pets during the day.

As a student, my timetable is pretty flexible so I am available most of the day to spend time with pets! They will receive lots of attention and cuddles! Due to renting I cannot bring pets back to my flat, but I have a car and am able to travel all around Dunedin. I have no restrictions on dog breeds, sizes etc as long as they are friendly! I can choose walking routes to suit each individual dog and they can be walked individually or with others depending on what they prefer! I also love the beach so if your dog likes the beach that's a bonus!

I am able to also keep pets company during the day, such as elderly or anxious dogs or cats who like company, I am able to come and sit with them while I study.

Please feel free to give me a call or text to find out more about me, I'm pretty flexible with my hours and can negotiate prices for multiple dogs etc. I look forward to hearing from you!

Cheers!

We have two elderly dogs who now struggle to be left alone while we are at work. Amelia responded very quickly to our enquiry and communication has been easy ever since. She spends time with them and ensures they have lunch, fresh water and toilet breaks. She is respectful towards the animals and the house. At the end of each visit she texts a brief report which is very thoughtful, and reassuring for us. Both of the dogs are much more relaxed when we get home now, so we would highly recommend Amelia to anyone needing welfare checks for their pets.
