About Hannah

Hi there!

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at our profile.

Joshua and I are really big animal lovers.

It primarily comes from our compassionate, caring, empathetic nature.

I make regular donations to charities like the SPCA and the WWF because I appreciate that animals cannot stand up for themselves and it pains me when I see them being mistreated.

When I was living in Auckland studying I had a long haired Chihuahua named Pepi.

I absolutely adored him!

I can completely understand how people treat their pets like their fur children because I was the same with him.

I made the really hard decision to rehome him when I realised that working full-time and studying and not being able to be home with him at least one day a week was affecting him.

It's hard to put your pets into the care of other people and we take the responsibility of Pet Minding really seriously.

Josh is a big cat person.

When we first started dating he had a gorgeous Moggy called Clooney (named after George Clooney)

They were especially close and Josh even got me to meet Clooney early on in our dating piece to see wether Clooney liked me or not.

I thought this was rather sweet.

Josh and I decided pet setting would be a great idea because we love animals but while we are saving for our own home we don't feel it is right to have our own pet until we can secure they will have a home ongoing as my experience with Landlords accepting animals has been mixed.

If we sit for you you can expect us to respect your home and leave exactly how you left it.

We are also happy to tend the garden if you like and any other bits and pieces you need done around the home.

I have been doing some self education online about pet behaviour and training techniques as well. You can expect us to take care of any pets you have to a high standard (we love animals).

We understand that a person's home is very much a prized possession.

We are happy to accomodate to your special requests regarding your pets.

If you would like regular updates about how they are doing while you are away we are more than happy to do that also.

Animal care is a real passion of mine.

Pets are so much more settled when they are in their own home and they are with someone who respects their space and their anxieties when their owner is away.

We recently looked after an older doggie with Athritis.

While the owners were away we noticed she seemed to be more uncomfortable than we would have liked.

I rung a vet friend of mine who suggested heat would help.

We purchased a hot water bottle for the dog and she was so much better after that.

It's one example of how we try to go above and beyond for animals that are in our care.

I recently left my 9-5 to run my life coaching business so I can be at home a lot of the time to care for your pet.

So you have peace of mind that they are not lonely.

Josh and I both have a bit of a green thumb (I am learning off him) and we are happy to keep to a list of tasks to make sure the house and Garden are taken care of while you are away.

We would love to hear from you if you feel we would be a good fit.

  • Hi have lots of experience with animals of my own. I am not vet trained or anything like that but I am very responsible and reliable.
  • I pride myself on my cleaning abilities after looking after a few unwell animals recently. I do my best to make sure your home remains tidy.
  • I am currently watching a number of online training videos about pet behaviour and needs.
  • I have a couple of friends who work with animals. One is a vet. So if I am ever unsure of anything or I have concerns I contact them
