About Coz

Hello, My name is Coz and I would love to look after your pets when needed. My husband and I moved to New Zealand 3 years ago and are loving it here. I worked as a vet nurse for over 12 years, mainly in the US but also here and in Australia. I have a broad experience in looking after animals of all kinds and love being with them. I am very experienced in giving medication and watching for signs of any medical issues. I have fostered 100's of puppies and quite a few kittens for various rescues, from bottle babies and up so am used to making new animals feel safe and loved. I volunteer at the SPCA one morning a week.

We are pet free at the moment as we lost our two wonderful dogs in the last few years so would love to welcome yours into our home for boarding or day care. Our house is warm and safe with a high fenced secure sunny yard. They would be most welcome to sleep wherever they would be the most comfortable. Would be willing to take dogs and cats from the same household. I also have experience with rabbits, ferrets, reptiles etc.

Also happy to come to your place for daily check ups, walks and feeding which I have prior experience in. We are a short walk to the Green Belt and a short drive to Lyall Bay dog beach, and happy to walk dogs on or off leash as required.

I work part time and am pretty flexible with my hours so I can be home a lot of the time to keep them company.

Would be happy for a Meet and Greet at your place or ours.

Dogs happy, me happy

Such a weight off my mind that they were with someone who could cope with their various medical requirements, Coz is unflappable!

Thanks again
