About Celia

Hi, I’m Celia! I'm 36, from the UK but now a NZ Citizen and call Wellington (Upper Hutt) home!

My motivation for being a pet sitter is to enrich the life of your pet as well as my own. I am happiest when I am around animals and love providing company and care for your pets. I have two wonderful dogs myself: Smudge - the cheeky Jack Russell and Bella - the beautiful Lab x Whippet (adopted from HUHA).

I enjoy taking them for walks, playing games, and spending time with them. I also adore cats, rabbits, guinea pigs etc, and have looked after many for friends and family over the years. I have experience volunteering at animal shelters and I was also part of 'team SPCA', running the Auckland Marathon to raise money to help animals in need.

Services I offer:

  • Dog Walking– 30/40 mins or more: dog walks morning and/or evenings during the week with more flexibility of times on the weekends.
  • Home Visits & House Sitting – I can visit your pets once or twice per day to feed, play and keep them company. I can also be available for house sitting, depending on my diary. I can stay at your house with your pets to keep them company if required.
I understand all animals have different personalities, needs, and wants. I am completely flexible in tailoring my services to suit yours and your pet's requirements.

I have a car so I can travel around for bookings in the Hutt Valley and Wellington area. Let me know if you have any queries and I look forward to meeting you and your pets very soon.

Celia took great care of my two dogs and a cat while we were away on a family holiday. She took time to get to know us and the dogs. My dogs we very happy to see Celia. We are very thankful to her and would like to carry on using her wonderful service.

Thanks,

Saida

Celia looked after our two cockatiels and rabbit while we were away for a week. She made sure they had plenty of time outside of their cage and gave them lots of fuss and attention, keeping us updated with photos each day. Our pets warmed to her quickly and she went over and above, staying with them even longer than required each evening. We would definitely recommend Celia and will use again in the future!
