About Karmen

Kiaora fellow pet lovers!

I love my animals and I assume you do too and that's why you want the best care possible for them when you are away or working so look no further because thats me!

For me spending time with my pets and yours is a privilege not a job 😀.

About me:

I have 3 cats of my own and 1 dog, and often petsit for my friends and family for a variety of dogs, cats, rabbits and chickens (if you consider them pets).

I am currently studying a Bachelors degree in Social Work online which is why I am needing a way to earn that extra money I need to stay afloat that can fit around my classes and study hours, and looking after animals for their loving owners seems like a great option.

Dog walker

My dog loves meeting and playing with other dogs so would be great if I can walk your dog with him at the same time. We usually go to the Hannahs Bay Reserve dog park or the Redwoods averagely for 30mins to an hour. I'm happy to simply walk your dog around the block if thats what they are used to or your local dog park.

Cat sitter

I believe that cats need some companionship as well as being fed so usually spend time with them just hanging out, so I am happy to bring in your mail or water plants and pull curtains etc if you accept my services.

Housesitting

I am usually able to housesit overnight for about 2-3 nights in a row then i like to negotiate a bit (eg. take your pet to my house for a night) as I have to look after my own babies and they get lonely if I'm away too long lol.

Daycare

I can usually look after at least one dog at my home a day during the hours of 9am - 4pm (negotiable). They will need to be housetrained and vaccinated and preferably neutered (especially female dogs). They will also need to play nicely with my dog and cats. I have a small fully fenced backyard and a kennel outside and in the garage as well as dog bed/blankets inside. Also various toys. Ideally it would be great if they can be walked off lead as I often will take them for a walk to the dog park as well.

Boarding

I don't offer a traditional boarding facility but I am happy to look after your dog or cat at my own home for the day or a few hours or the night if necessary (negotiable). Unfortunately as i already have 3 cats of my own i am only able to have cats for short term visits. My fee for dogs for the day and night is $40 and may include extra depending on time of drop off and pick up.

Please get in contact with me if you are wanting someone responsible, honest, reliable and pet-friendly to look after your fur-babies.
