I love pets and cannot wait to meet yours!
Since no two pets are the same, I will meet you for an obligation-free meet and greet, to get to know your pet (and we can ask each other any questions).
You will receive multiple daily photos, videos, and updates while I'm with your pet/s so you can see the fun that we get up to as it happens!
Most of the finer details will be discussed during the meet-and-greet, so reach out now and we can organise one soon.
Pet Related Experience
My extensive experience includes volunteering at the SPCA since early 2018, working as an assistant dog trainer, volunteering at the Kitten Inn, and helping pet owners with their cats, dogs, rabbits and even mice through Pawshake for a year.
Every pet I have looked after has its own personality and interesting quirks, and with that, they hold a special place in my heart. This includes dogs that are fear-aggressive, anxious and easily over-stimulated, cats that won't leave you alone and some that want nothing to do with you.
I am a full-time student, studying software engineering (which I normally do remotely) and have a part-time job where I work up to 3 days a week for a max of 5 hours each day.
Wellington Dog walker
While you're busy, hard at work, your dog will be out and about enjoying a fun-filled adventure around the parks and trails offered in Wellington.
Throughout the walk, we will do some simple training and fun games that will help your dog to be calmer, more focused, or more confident.
Your dog will be out and about for at least an hour, smelling new smells and meeting new friends.
There is one group walk and one solo walk each day. If your dog joins the group walk you can expect them to be out for around 2-3 hours.
I love dogs of all shapes and sizes and am not afraid of a little mud and rain.
Wellington Dog Boarding
If you are heading away, let your pet/s enjoy a holiday of their own.
A day spent here usually includes a long walk in the morning and another adventure later in the day (e.g. another walk, going to the beach, fetch at the park) with plenty of playtime and cuddles between.
Your dog is welcome to sleep inside on a bed of their own - or even on my bed. They will spend most of their day in my sleep-out/granny flat, on an adventure, or relaxing with my family (I live with my mum and sister but we do not have any pets).
My sleep-out/granny flat is fully fenced, the shortest part of the fencing is 1.3m high, so can be jumped by larger dogs.
When taking care of your pet/s in my home, I may need to leave for up to 5 hours, and whilst there is nearly always someone home when I am out, I only take on dogs that would be comfortable if they needed to be left alone for this amount of time.
House sitter / Dog Sitter / Cat Sitter
PLEASE NOTE: I am currently only accepting house sits in Karori, Northland, Wilton, CBD, and Wadestown or from pets I have looked after before. However, if you are looking for a dog sitter from outside of these areas, I would be happy to have your dog stay at my place.
By continuing your pet/s regular routines and allowing them to stay in their happy place - your house, they will be comfortable and happy while you are away.
Your pet/s will get masses of love and attention as well as daily exercise.
Somedays I leave for work for up to 5 hours, for this reason, I ask that your pet/s are comfortable with spending some time without human company.
Awesome as always. Thanks Helene.
Great dog walker, always communicates well and takes Butts on great walk locations.
