About Sophie

From the start I have always had animals in my life influencing my love and obsession to take care of and connect with dogs, cats amd the occasional lamb here in NZ. I grew up with two Jack Russel terriers, a border collie, and a Mustang in the Oregon countryside. I have a strong love for animals and useful experience working with many types of animals. Spending 2020 on a farm in Gisborne reawakened my passion for caring for all animals great and small. Each day included caring for and milking the house cow, taking the lab Jess to the beach, horse riding and raising a lamb who now thinks she is a dog. New to Wellington I am not able to have a pet of my own so I currently spend my time at the SPCA working and caring for the dogs. At the SPCA I have experience walking all sizes and types of dogs and making friends with the most frightened of cats. Other tasks that I assist with are feeding, giving medication, training, playing, grooming, and cuddles. Through the SPCA I am studying animal care which is a certification in caring for dogs, cats and small animals, this will help in being more prepared to take care of any pet in need and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your pet! I would like to spend more time walking dogs and playing with cats and other pets when holidays, work trips, or something comes up unexpectedly for all of you lucky pet owners out there.

Bring your dog to mine! I live in a house with a fenced in area in the back and plenty of room inside too. We will go on many walks in the neighborhood, to the beach and along the trails.

Weekends I am available for dog boarding and the occasional week night.

I can't wait to meet you and your pet!

Sophie was a great sitter, she went out her way to look after Ella and was very flexible with our trip plans.
