About Matilda

My name is Matilda! I am 30years old, I moved from France to New Zealand last year and I am planning to stay here for a few years. I have been a pet Sitter for a while and absolutely love it ! I know how to adapt myself to all different dogs personalities (rescue dogs, anxious, older as well) I enjoy walking them and try to go to dog exercice areas when possible (and your permission). I have a Vehicle and can collect/drop off if you don’t live too far away. I can watch, walk, play or even just check in on your dog and stay for an hour with them (visits)

I have big dogs experience, small dogs experience, and everything in between. I'm familiar with a variety of harnesses. I will respect any dietary restriction and I can also administer medication if needed. Your pet will not be walked, cared for with or exposed to other unfamiliar animals without your permission! Your animals' comfort and safety always comes first! If this is something you would like, I will keep you updated daily and send as many pictures as you want while I am minding your pet! I live with my partner Laurence. We both are pet lovers and we enjoy minding your pets in our house. We have a garden but it is not fenced. They can play there under my watch if they are allowed off the lead. Otherwise there are lots of lovely safe walks on the hill behind the house and I will walk your dog as many times as he needs. If we mind your cat she will be indoor only. There is always one of us home so your pet will not be left alone. You are more than welcome to come to meet us and visit the place before making a booking.

We only take toilet trained dogs. If you have any inquiries regarding booking or other questions, please feel free to reach out and I will respond as soon as possible! I can also meet you for a first meeting to get to know each other. Thank you for your interest and I hope to meet you soon! Availability: I am working a few hours a week as a nurse/support worker in Wellington suburbs with flexible hours. I will update my free days/nights as often as possible on the website.

Matilda was a wonderful pet sitter. This was the first time we had used the service and I definitely will again. Our little dog Beau is used to being at home and this was the best next thing as he was so well cared for - including sitting on the couch just like home! Photos and messages over the weekend let us know he was fine.

Matilda was amazing with Jax. We had plenty of photos and updates, Jax got heaps of exercise and chasing the ball. He came home very happy. Thoroughly recommend Matilda.
