Hi everyone! My name is Olivia and I am so excited to be able to share this experience with your beautiful animals! I am based in Richmond Nelson, although I do not mind travelling around Nelson/Tasman region for your fur babies. I cannot wait to be able to pet sit, dog walk or visit your animals for you!
I am able to look after dogs, cats or small animals, as well as dog walk as I have such a love for animals and exercise, so why not combine them! Currently I am working at a recreation centre, so this backs up the fitness side of the walking. No animals deserve to be at home all day by themselves, which is where my experience and caring attitude comes in handy. I have always had animals in my life, and before I moved back to Nelson I was working at a wildlife park in Christchurch, proving just how much affection I have towards animals! I have also graduated a bachelor of Criminal Justice degree, providing evidence of my trustworthiness and reliability! I am flexible although I do work full time, I have listed the days I am able to do walk below and I can house sit at any time depending on the animals needs as I won't always be home while I am at work during the day. I have recently raised/trained my parents Border Collie puppy before going flatting in Richmond, and she is the 3rd dog I have had as a pet. Although with having 2 cats throughout my life and 2 rabbits. I have heaps of experience looking after animals outside of Pawshake too before I joined, so it's not something that is new to me. I love all animals, big or small and would love to provide help and love to your animals!
When house sitting/home visits:
I will give you updates each day as to how your pet is doing, along with photos of them via pawshake or text (whichever you prefer). I will feed, water, walk (if needed), medicate (if needed), clean up after and give lots of attention to your pet. How much time I spend with the pet will be dependent on what the owner is wanting, I work full time but on my days off I can be with the pet for the majourity of the day and I will always be with them in the mornings and evenings, as well as checking in on them on my lunch break if close by and deemed necessary. When doing home visits, the minimum visit time would be 30 minutes. The house will be kept clean and tidy and I can do other tasks such as putting out the bins, gettng in the mail if required.
When dog walking:
I am available to dog walk on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesday mornings. The duration of the walk will be dependent on the dogs needs but a will have a minimum walk time of 30 minutes. I will sort out with the owner the expetations of the walk and rules, such as lead walking, if the dog has issues regarding being around other dogs and locking up the house etc.
My calendar is updated regularly but from my description above you can see when I am available on a general basis.
Olivia did a fantastic job looking after our house rabbit Nibs, we will definitely be booking again soon. Highly recommend.
Would recommend Olivia to anyone needing their pets. Super impressed with her communication before, during and after her stay. Olivia was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Pawshake overall exceeded my expectations.
I am working towards my Bachelor of Criminal Justice.
I currently work at a Wildlife Park.
I have trained animals before, as well as having experience in dog sitting.
