About Helene

If you are heading away, let your pet(s) enjoy a staycation with a trusted pet sitter.

As well as lots of pet sitting, my experience includes spending time as an SPCA volunteer (for about 3 years), assistant dog trainer (helping teach courses for puppies and pet dog obedience), and as a dog walker. I am also certified in pet first aid, keep a pet first aid kit in my vehicle, and am fully insured.

House sitting includes walks, cuddles, feeding, medicating and plenty of updates. I am home studying most of the day, but may be out for about 5 hours (plus travel time). If your dog(s) regularly comes along on my midday pack adventures, then daily pack walks are included. Otherwise, I'll take your dog(s) on an adventure of their own.

Requirements

* I am happy to look after houses and pet(s) located throughout Karori, Northland, Kelburn, Wilton, Wadestown and Crofton Downs.

* I will need access to your internet for watching lectures etc.

* Your pet(s) need to be comfortable spending around 5 hours alone.

* Let me know of any medical or behavioural conditions that your pet(s) has, that could affect their care.

* I am happy to care for dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds and cats, but not other species.

House Sitting
Chanelle, 2022-01-09

We have had Helene house sit twice for us, as well as pack walks.

She has been fantastic with our big dog who has people aggression. He loves her and and he doesn’t like many people!

She took him on lots of fun adventures while we were away. We returned to a clean home and garden/plants watered as requested. Our cat also happy and well looked after.

Highly recommend 😊
