About Kristina

Hi, my name is Kristina, and I am passionate about dogs.

My current occupation is working on the Canine Team at SPCA over a year, and through this time I have worked with almost 100 dogs! I enjoy my time looking after them, cleaning, feeding, and taking them for walks in all weather. Ever since my childhood, I cared about our family Labrador which brought our family many years of love and good memories. Recently I got an opportunity to expand my knowledge about dogs (and other animals) and so I am currently studying an Animal Care program as I desire to professionally work with them.

My husband, I and our 9 months old Swedish Vallhund puppy Runa live in Strathmore Park which is in a dog-friendly neighbourhood.

Outside of working at SPCA, I have decided to offer my skills to help you by taking care of your best friend while you work.

I can offer these services in the suburbs of Miramar, Strathmore, Kilbirnie, Rongotai, Lyall Bay, Maupuia, Seatoun, Moa Point, Breaker Bay:

- Dog walking, between 30 and 120 minutes in your neighbourhood.

- Basic/advanced training, I know how to train on over 30 commands.

- Feeding by hand, with plenty of encouragement for reluctant dogs.

- Oral medication, I can minister prescriptions as needed.

- Home visits for dogs, between 8am and 6:30pm.

Working with multiple large dogs should be no problem but contact me to discuss in more detail.

Thank you for your consideration, I look forward to meeting you and your pets :)

I'm so grateful that we met and hired Kristina - she has far exceeded our expectations and our dog Bella loves her. Bella gets so excited when she sees Kristina coming! Kristina is an excellent communicator, always on-time, reliable and practicle, and she is knowlegable and passionate about animals. She does training with Bella while out walking. She even suggested we buy an affordable foldable water bowl so Bella can stay hydrated on warm days. Kristina now walks Bella twice a week while we are at work and sends us a message afterwards to confirm that Bella is safe and happy. Kristina's services are extremely good value for money and I highly, highly recommend her.
