About Celia

Hi, I’m Celia! I'm from the UK but now a New Zealand Citizen and call 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) and have also had rabbits and guinea pigs in the past.

I adore all animals and am very experienced in caring for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds etc. I have previously volunteered at animal shelters and I was also part of 'team SPCA', running the Auckland Marathon to raise money for animals in need. I have also been studying various animal courses recently and am always keen to learn more about our animal friends.

Services I offer:

Home Visits: I can visit your pets at your home once or twice per day (mornings and evenings) to feed, play, clean litter, and keep them company. I allocate up to 40 mins for one booking. If you have more than 2 pets I may require you to make more than one booking to allow time for all the pets to be cared for (we can discuss this at the meet and greet).

Dog Walking: I can walk your dog/s for up to 40 mins per booking. I am currently only available after 6pm during weekday evenings but have more flexibility of time of day over weekends and holiday periods. I can also feed your pet before/after the walk if required.

House Sitting: I can stay at your home with your pets overnight (where they will feel more happy and comfortable). Often pets do not like changes in their routine and being in unfamiliar places, especially if you have anxious pets so having a pet sitter stay at your home is a great solution. This booking includes morning and evening feeds, playtimes, clean litter, etc. For dogs - one 'house sitting' booking includes one evening dog walk.

I understand all animals have different personalities, needs, and wants and I am happy to tailor my services to suit your pet's requirements. I mainly cover the central Upper Hutt area but if you live further out please send me a message and I will see what I can do (a small fee may be charged for travel costs).

If you have any questions let me know I will respond to you as soon as I can. I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

Celia was a phenomenal catsitter for our much-loved grumpy cat! Celia kept in touch and was flexible about meeting us. She fitted us in with relatively little notice and fed, walked, and took care of our cat's litterbox perfectly. We're very grateful for Celia's kindness and conscientiousness.

I'm so happy that I found Celia on Pawshake, I would highly recommend her to anybody , I came home to two very happy, non stressed dogs , Celia is excellent in communicating, plus sent me photos of the girls when out and about, so reassuring for a worry wort mum like me!!!
