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.

Services Offered

Dog Walking - 30 minutes, 1 hour or more if desired for your dog. I love going to the beach and spending time in the large parks. Off leash or on leash, whichever is best for your pup.

Home Visits/ Feeding

Home Viisits and feeding would vary on what needs you have and what you would like me to do while visiting. We can discuss further details with each househould.

Dog Boarding

Bring your dog to mine! I live in a house with a fenced in area in the back and plenty of room inside too.

Availability

Weekends I am available for dog boarding. During the week my schedule changes but please message me for specific availability for dog walking and pet feeding.

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

Dog Boarding
Lofi, 2021-10-11

Thank you Sophie for looking after Nala for the long weekend! She loved being with you and was so well looked after. I was especially happy with getting regular photos of Nala on her adventures. Sophie also helped with keeping Nala’s meds going as she has epilepsy.

Highly recommended and would definitely book again in future for another weekend away 😃

Our dog Frida came back from a weekend with Sophie very relaxed and happy. It was clear she had been well looked after. Sophie was very reliable and I would have no hesitations using her again for dog boarding
