About Michelle

Hi! I've had animals all my life - mostly growing up with cats before having my own dog with my boyfriend for the last ten years. Unfortunately, we have split up - and I'm missing my puppy fix! Send me a message so I can look after your animals and satisfy my need to give pats at the same time :)

My photos include pics of me with our pup Sadie, who is a French Bulldog, as well as with my moggy tabby cat Diego. 

Diego is an overly friendly puss, who cannot stand not being touched. I thought it was cute to teach him to give kisses when he was a kitten, but he doesn't actually understand how to gently give kisses... all the same I enjoy his head butts 😍

Having enjoyed using PawShake to look after my pets whilst I've been away, I thought it was high time that I returned the favour to my community - yes, I'm doing this for you... no gain for myself such as pup beach walks or purring kitties... I've only had good experiences and I want to give that same experience. Meanwhile, I also understand the amount of trust that it takes to leave your fur baby with a relative stranger - I can promise that I will do my utmost to make them feel loved and content whilst you are away ☺️

I'm mostly available after work hours (I work 8:30-5pm Monday to Friday) with some availability to work from home for a day or half day (if organised in advance). I can give oral medications and can offer basic training to your dog. I can trim cats nails if required and groom both cats and dogs.  

For home visits we can discuss how long you would like me to stay with your pet - I am unable to do these during work hours. Happy to water plants or bring in mail too, just let me know. For dog walks, I am flexible with what you would like - some dogs only need half an hour gentle walk, whereas others require longer and more energy to be burnt!

For house sitting, I am available most of the time so long as you are aware that I work in Tauranga city 8:30-5pm Monday to Friday, so cannot be with your pets all day, but will happily come home to them and hang out with them on weekends. I will take all instructions left to me about how to lock up your home etc whilst you are away and I will treat your home like my own!

We felt very confident leaving our three frenchies with Michelle! They were so well looked after and we returned home to 3 very happy doggos! We would definitely recommend Michelle :)
